Pride Flag Symbolizes Support

When LGBTQIA+ students said flying a rainbow flag can help more students feel included on campus, IUP’s Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement responded. The new flag and pole, located just south of Elkin Hall’s Great Room, will be formally dedicated Tuesday, October 12, at noon. Learn how support for LGBTQIA+ students at IUP goes beyond raising a flag. 
Each year before Homecoming, students are chosen through a university-wide student vote to represent their academic colleges on the Crimson Court. Learn about members of this year’s court: Kaylee Long, Katarina Noll, Mac Mead, Jayden Thomas, Anastasia Benc, Ashley Yanni, and Makenzie Fello.
