The Pride Center is open to all students, faculty, and staff as a safe space on campus.

The Pride Center works to provide a safe and welcoming environment for UT’s diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual communities.

As a physical symbol of UT’s commitment to diversity, the Pride Center provides support, resources, and a community space for UT’s LGBTQQIA and ally students, faculty, and staff, as well as anyone who seeks to learn about sexual orientation or gender identity. Pride achieves this by sponsoring programs and events that raise awareness, that increase visibility, and that engage in advocacy regarding LGBTQQIA issues.

“We believe the center is a vital resource to have on campus for all students, faculty, and staff. We’re glad the Center is here!” —Leticia Flores, faculty member

As a component of the University of Tennessee, the Center recognizes the importance of research to expand knowledge. The Center is committed to protecting human subjects engaged in research conducted or supported by the University.

Prior to initiating any research on human subjects at or associated with the Center, investigators must first obtain the approval of the University IRB through their established policies and procedures. Only research approved by UT’s IRB and the Center’s staff will be permitted on-site. Off-site research soliciting participants via e-mail must also have IRB approval from the researcher’s home institution.

For more information on research policies please visit the Office of Research and Engagement web site.

Currently, the Center has one meeting room that can seat around 12 people.  It has a white board (the room does not have a projector or screen).  The room can be reserved for any hours when the Center is open.  Please contact at least one week in advance to reserve the room.
