COVID 19 Message

In the Pride Center, we strive to provide excellent care for students, faculty, and staff. Despite COVID 19, the pride center will still be open! Ready to provide you with socially distanced, and virtual support. A big part of our role on campus is to be present with people. Please do not hesitate to reach out, ask questions, or share concerns. Send emails to  pridecenter@uwlax.edu or wvanroosenbeek@uwlax.edu
