Proud of our UC Davis students and community

Among the many reasons I appreciate UC Davis, is the emphasis the university places on creating an atmosphere where students feel accepted, recognized, and supported. 

June is Pride Month, and it’s the perfect opportunity to support the UC Davis programs and services you care about—along with helping our community members feel the support and acceptance they deserve.

Blake Flaugher (he/him), the director of the UC Davis LGBTQIA Resource Center, has spent his entire career working to support and advocate for LGBTQIA+ youth. “Our community has a lot of passion and energy for connecting with one another and advocating, and that vibrancy is what I appreciate the most about UC Davis,” Blake says. “Our students need visible support and resources that help them connect with one another, promote their well-being and navigate their identities while trying to earn a degree.”

Programs and services that support student well-being can benefit from your generosity, like our LGBTQIA Resource Centerwhich aims to provide a space where students, staff, faculty members and community members of all sexes, gender identities, gender expressions and orientations are welcomed and celebrated. The Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Programs Fund, which provides grants for research projects that address issues of race, ethnicity, and culture. The Health Equity Fund, which helps offset out of pocket medical expenses for students not covered by insurance. And our Student Disability Center, which promotes independence and integrated participation in campus life for students with disabilities.

Please know that your support now, during Pride Month, makes a difference to the UC Davis programs you care about. 

Thank you for all you do as a UC Davis parent. Go Ags!
