About Us

Mission Statement

The PRIDE Center is committed to enriching the campus experience and developing students as individuals and as members of communities. We exist to create and maintain a campus environment that is open, safe, and supportive of student diversity in the areas of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Our work is accomplished through student-centered education, outreach, advocacy and support.


The PRIDE Center envisions lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, and same-gender-loving people and our allies as fully included and affirmed in every aspect of the Sacramento State community where justice, equality and respect for all prevail.


We recognize that sexual orientation and gender identity work through and are influenced by race/ethnicity, gender, culture, age, ability status, class, faith, and other social characteristics. In keeping with the ideals of Sacramento State to provide leadership and service, we commit to justice, equality, and respect for all persons in all of our endeavors.


  • Provide educational events and programming on sexual and gender identity
  • Provide resources in the form of library materials, study space, updated internet resources, list-serves, newsletters, and knowledgeable staff
  • Coordinate with and provide support to units and departments serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and ally communities at Sacramento State University
  • Refer students to organizations, services, and agencies on campus and in the surrounding communities that support the needs of LGBTA individuals
