LGBTQA and EWU Pride
When you become an Eagle, you join a family that celebrates and promotes the differences among all people. In 2009 EWU opened its Pride Center in the university's main administration building. EWU's LGBTQA community continues to grow each year, and last year EWU's Eagle Pride student club set new records for attendance and membership.
LGBTQA on EWU's Campus
Out or in, gay or straight, asexual or third gender, questioning or certain: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning students and their allies are always welcome at EWU.
EWU's Pride Center hosts frequent events and programs throughout the year, and you can get connected even before you start your career as an EWU Eagle.
