Georgia College PRIDE (Gay - Straight Alliance) Constitution

 

Constitution Revised August 26th 2013

Georgia College

 

PREAMBLE

The mission of the Georgia College PRIDE gay-straight alliance is to affirm the existence and development of LGBTQ individuals at GC, and to support a strong and welcoming community among them and allies within the larger institution. The program works to lessen the prejudice that limits the educational experience and well-being of LGBTQ community members and others within the institution. The group provides an open, diverse, and comfortable atmosphere in which all members of the GC community may explore sexual and gender identity issues and serves as a central point for campus LGBTQ resources, services, and programs. Through its work, the group contributes to the University's pledge to facilitate an environment full of diversity, equity, leadership development, and intellectual exploration.
