Pride List

In celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month and our diverse Racer family, the Pride Center is proud to release the 2022 Pride List. We are honored to have the support of administrators from across campus alongside our students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members who make this initiative so special. Pride List signatures represent LGBTQIA+ Racers who want to share their pride and allies who want to make their support known to the campus community. 

If you did not get to sign the Pride List it is not too late! We will continue to collect signatures throughout the month of October. Sign the 2022 Pride List today!

In recognition of LGBTQ+ History Month and in support of our Racer family, I am proud to take part in the 2022 Pride List.  At Murray State University, we are committed to a campus community that welcomes and embraces all individuals as their authentic selves.  

The Pride List is just one way to shine a light on the diversity that makes Murray State University a special place to call home. 

Thank you to our campus members who have taken part in this effort.

I am very pleased to participate in this year’s Pride List Program.  The Pride List is a very visible and powerful statement of Murray State University and the Division for Student Affairs’ commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.  It serves as a welcoming  message to all of our LGBTQIA+ students, faculty, and staff. 

We are committed to providing a welcoming and accepting community for all so everyone can reach their full potential and have the best possible experience at our University.  Thank you to everyone who participates in this important project.

Dear MSU Community:

The Office of Multicultural Initiatives, Student Leadership & Inclusive Excellence, values a diverse campus community. Our priority is to provide a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment for our students, as reflected in the MSU Community Commitment. We value the four principles of our Community Commitment which are:

  1. Accepting one another.

  2. Learning from one another.

  3. Creating an atmosphere of positive engagement.

  4. Challenging racism, discrimination, phobias & biases.

We are committed to providing inclusive programs, services and activities for all students enrolled at the institution. Our overarching goal is to infuse the ideals and values of the Community Commitment in the every fabric of our institution. Continued support of LGBT Programming and the Pride Center is key to this effort.

As the Pride Center Director, it is my privilege to meet our amazing students who are stepping into their authentic selves and striving for success here at Murray State. They are my constant reminder to believe in the power that we each hold as individuals to positively impact the world around us. When they see the Pride List, my hope is that they know and sense that the campus community is for them and they are encouraged to continue pursuing their goals. 

Thank you to each person who has taken time to be a part of our 2022 Pride List. Your participation and your messages of support have been meaningful!

As the Murray State University Student Government Association President, it is my honor to represent and serve our incredible student population. The Murray State University Pride List is a testament to Murray State’s lifelong commitment of acceptance, love, and belonging for all members of our Racer community. As a student here, you are cherished and valued for who you are, and the 2022 Pride List serves to welcome students and connect them to faculty, administration, and their peers.

Our Murray State Family would not be complete without you in it. It is my hope that here you will find true values of acceptance and inclusion and that you will seek endless opportunities within it. If Student Government can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Shoes Up and Go Racers!
