UAH Pride

Join us in commemorating a significant moment in our journey as #UAHPride marks its fifth year of supporting and celebrating diversity and inclusion within our university community. Since its inception, UAH Pride has been dedicated to fostering an environment where all students, faculty, and staff feel valued, respected, and embraced for who they are.

Throughout the past five years, UAH Pride has been a vibrant and welcoming space, promoting understanding and unity through a range of events, initiatives, and educational programs. We are proud of the progress we've made together, and we remain committed to creating an inclusive campus for everyone.

As we celebrate this milestone, we invite you to join our ongoing efforts in creating a campus culture that celebrates diversity, cultivates understanding, and uplifts every individual. Together, we can continue to build a stronger and more inclusive community that thrives on mutual respect and support.

Throughout the month of October, #UAHPride2023 tradition events will be celebrated campus-wide by the UAH Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and other campus partners.

Watch the Event listings for details about each of these functions. If you'd like to be involved in the tradition events, or have an idea for another event, fill out the form.
