Community of Pride

LGBTQ Pride Learning CommunityLGBTQIA+ students and allies, find your home on campus in Community of Pride!

This is a learning community specifically designed with you in mind. We recognize that it is particularly important for queer and trans students to find a safe, supportive, and loving community on campus, and Community of Pride exists to fill this need. You will take classes focused on queer-specific content and build community at DVC with like-minded students and instructors.

How does it work?

In this learning community, you take two courses: one English course and one social science course. The courses are themed around issues of particular interest and importance to our community: identity, mental health, history, and activism. They also help you meet your general education requirements for degree and transfer, regardless of your major!

In addition to course work, there are extra supports built into the learning community, including links to counseling, special guest speakers, workshops, and peer mentorship opportunities.

In Fall 2021, you'll take two great courses - English 122 for first-year College Composition and Reading and Psychology 122 for Psychology in Modern Life.

Community of Pride is open to anyone.
