Pride support at UFV

Bringing together LGBTQI+ info, resources, and services

UFV continually works on being:

  • a welcoming, accessible, safe, and respectful place to study and to develop as people and professionals;
  • mindful of our commitments to our students; and
  • a community where people can learn and become better allies to our peers.

Pride Culture Conference

Thank you to everyone that attended the second annual Pride Culture Conference (PCC) — an event meant for meaningful, and inspiring conversation for members, allies, and advocates of the 2SLGBTQIAP+ community! While we pause over the summer and prepare for an in-person return to campus for Fall 2021, we will be exploring what the PCC looks like moving forward. For the most up-to-date info on the PCC, follow us on Facebook!

Join the UFV Pride Collective

This UFV student group is a safe, fun way to connect and engage with other students, peers, staff, alumni, and community members in and around UFV. Members of the LGBTQI+ community, as well as allies and advocates, are welcome to join. Come to events, meetings, educational opportunities, and much more. Visit the UFV Pride Collective on Facebook and at myCampusLife.

Gender-inclusive washrooms

As a part of our commitment to make UFV an inclusive, safe space, we have put together a gender-inclusive washrooms map as a resource to the community.

Be an ally—learn, reflect, and practice

Everyone has a right to study in a safe, respectful, and comfortable environment at UFV. One way we can all make a difference and ensure a positive study and workplace is to be allies of the LGBTQI+ community. This means being an active bystander towards harassment or discrimination, reporting incidents of misconduct, and being respectful of others’ views and opinions.

The Canada Human Rights Trust shares steps and strategies as to how we can all be allies to the LGBTQI+ community. More education on LGBTQI+ topics for non-LGBTQI+ peers was a large desire expressed in their research conducted in the university setting.
