Pride Center

PC Logo Picture of the Campus Pride Index rating for Murray State.


The Pride Center works to provide a space for connection, growth and engagement for the LGBTQ+ student community through activities, services, support, training and social events. The work of the Pride Center fosters a stronger campus environment that is inclusive and supportive of all identities.

The Campus Pride Index is an overall indicator of institutional commitment to LGBTQ-inclusive policy, program and practice. The index is owned and operated by Campus Pride, the leading national nonprofit organization for student leaders and campus groups working to create safer, more LGBTQ-friendly learning environments at colleges and universities. The index is supported under the Campus Pride Q Research Institute for Higher Education as well as benefits from strategic partnerships with professional organizations in higher education and related LGBTQ nonprofit organizations.
