Panels/Presentations
The Pride Center offers panels and presentations for classes, organizations, community events, or any group that is interested. The focus of these events is to educate the audience about general LGBTQ information and issues. 
 
The format: To begin a panel, LGBTQ+ identified students and/or staff give a brief personal introduction. The panel then presents a basic introduction to LGBTQ terminology and safer space guidelines. After this, they open the floor for questions from the audience. The panel members are there to educate the community, but they do reserve the right to turn down any questions that they do not feel comfortable answering. This whole presentation lasts at least one hour, but it often expands to fit the time available. 
 
Interested in being on a panel? Contact the Pride Center. Check our Facebook groups for times and updates.

Bulletin Boards
The Pride Center has a collection of LGBTQ focused bulletin boards that are available to be checked out. These can be used in residence halls, or for any educational purposes. They cover a variety of topics and themes such as queer poets, sexual violence in the LGBT community, or more intersectional topics like disability and sexuality or information on influential black and queer activists throughout history. Bulletin boards are available for periods of one month.
