Mission Statement

Palomar College Pride Center Mission Statement

In keeping with Palomar College’s commitment to create a safe campus, the Pride Center exists, within the oversight of the PC3H, to provide a space for members of the college community to explore issues relating to sexual and gender identities, practices, and politics. The Center offers LGBTQ students and staff a secure place to study, converse, explore, and join in common celebration of their experience. It also promotes student leadership, professional and academic equity, and visibility of gender and sexual minorities in addition to providing educational resources and programs for the LGBTQ and Allies community. We value intersectionality and racial and economic justice and support other campus groups in striving towards such justice. While the Center welcomes all Palomar students and staff regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, it serves first and foremost as a Safe Zone for the campus LGBTQ community.
