Administrative history

The University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union (USSU) opened the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Centre on September 3, 1997. Funded by the Students’ Union but maintained and operated by volunteers, the Centre was created to provide information, support, and advocacy around sexual and gender diversity issues for all students at the University of Saskatchewan. It operates as a resource centre and provides services such as a drop-in centre, resource library, peer support, speakers bureau, discussion groups, safer sex information, workshops, and volunteer opportunities. It is committed to educating and bringing awareness of sexual and gender diversity issues and experiences to the campus community. The Centre also advocates for the rights and equality for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. The name of this Centre was changed to USSU Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Ally (LGBTA) Centre in 2002. In 2007, the Centre’s name was changed again to USSU Pride Centre.
