Safe Space Program
Safe Space Program Mission Satement
The Safe Space campaign actively works to make Southeastern a safe and inclusive place for all students, faculty and staff regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. The campaign emphasizes providing educational opportunities, ongoing professional development and programming for students, staff, faculty and administration about the unique challenges that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) individuals and their allies often encounter. It also works with students, staff, faculty, administration, student organizations and university departments to represent LGBTQ concerns; provides advocacy and resources; and organizes LGBTQ panels and presentations.
What is a "safe space"?
Faculty or staff who have completed a Safe Space training can choose to display a sticker on their office door indicating that they are an ally of the LGBTQ community and are welcoming and supportive of LGBTQ students.
