The College’s P.R.I.D.E. (Pursuing Respect, Inclusion, and Diversity for Everyone) Network celebrated their recent efforts to improve the College’s Campus Pride Index score. The group, which began as a social group for LGBTQ+ and allied faculty and staff, worked over the past year to evaluate and improve components of campus related to LGBTQ+ and ally programs. LVC’s Campus Pride Index score increased from a 3-star to a 4-star rating. Members of the network are Dr. Laura Eldred, interim associate provost of undergraduate education; Dr. Barbara Prince, assistant professor of sociology; Dr. Holly Wendt, interim chair of humanities, associate professor of English, and director of creative writing; Dr. Tonya Miller, assistant professor of physical therapy; and Tyler Cox, associate director of intercultural affairs and inclusion and deputy Title IX coordinator.
