About Proud

We are founded on the principles of promoting an inclusive and accepting environment for the aforementioned individuals.

  • We represent the collective voice of LGBTQIA+ individuals on campus.
  • We believe that all individuals deserve equal rights, opportunities and civil liberties, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity.
  • We do not tolerate hate, discrimination, harassment or prejudice of any kind.
  • We invite all students and faculty of UNI to join us.
