The mission of the PRIDE Center is to support the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Nonbinary, etc.) students of San José State University. Through dynamic programming and educational outreach the PRIDE Center seeks to improve the campus climate for LGBTQ+ students and advocate for the respect and safety of all members of the campus community. In collaboration with other campus programs the center works to meet the needs of students to promote the successful completion of their educational goals.
We sponsor educational and community building programs. Our library has an extensive collection of books concerning LGBTQ+ issues. The center can be used for club meetings, studying, and hanging out. The center networks with campus and San José area organizations in order to build a stronger community and support system for the LGBTQ+ students of San José State University.
