This academic year, PrismND — Notre Dame’s first official LGBT and ally organization — aims to continue its mission of trying to help the campus experience of students in the LGBT community.
“We try to help those students improve their Notre Dame experience and advocate for them,” senior Baylea Williams, PrismND’s president, said.
Senior Kelly Valenzi, the organization’s vice president and Diversity Council representative, added that PrismND seeks to be a social space as well.
“We are a closed door and safe space for closeted and not-out students for some social interaction with their community,” Valenzi said.
