San Diego Mesa College will host the grand opening of its Pride Center at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, February 22, 2023.
Local elected officials and the San Diego Community College District will join Mesa College administrators, faculty, staff and students, and LGBTQ+ community members to celebrate the historic Grand Opening.
After the Program, members of the Mesa College and greater community will be invited to tour the new Pride Center, in Room D-102, as well as connect to resources available at the center and through community partners.
The Pride Center at San Diego Mesa College was established to create a safe environment where LGBTQIA+ students, staff, faculty, and allies can be their authentic selves, feel welcomed, comfortable and at home. Services available at the center will include academic/career/personal counseling, workshops, a computer lab, free supplies, an LGBTQ+ library, training and meeting space, along with referrals to additional resources.
“As the leading college of equity and excellence, San Diego Mesa College strives to create inclusive spaces and places for our students, staff, faculty and the broader community,” said San Diego Mesa College President Ashanti T. Hands. “Having a Pride Center on our campus creates the welcoming environment that helps our students succeed.”
