“Pride’s out, proud, at ASUA”

Pride Alliance comes out to ASUA Senate – to request funding for Coming Out Week in early October.

Pride, the student government’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Questioning advocacy group, creates a full spread ad of volunteering students with their names, majors and ‘LGBTQ status’ to commemorate Coming Out Week in campus media forums, like the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

“”It’s pretty big,”” said Kira Johnson, one of two co-directors for Pride Alliance. A sophomore studying English, Johnson noted the initiative to commemorate the official start of Coming Out Week on Oct. 8, is one of many steps the organization is taking to drum up awareness.

Their funding request is for the partial advertisement cost of $500.

The funding request, along with the weekly confirmation of Monday’s consent agenda funding which approves club funding from ASUA’s recognized clubs, are two of three action items at Wednesday’s ASUA senate meeting.

The third item up is a presidential appointment of one of three marketing directors, Julia Lovering, to join the ranks of William Chase Miller, last week’s marketing director appointee.

The Undergraduate Council, whose monthly meetings review curriculum university-wide, and through its academic programs and curriculum and policies subcommittees review policy for final faculty senate approval, is introducing a syllabus presentation as one of two action items at the meeting. The budget and expense report update will fill out the rest of the informational items on the agenda.
