Mission:

The Safe Space Program seeks to create a safer and more inclusive campus environment for all members of the campus community by reducing heterosexism, homophobia, and transphobia. Through the training program and the display of Safe Space placards & buttons the program creates a visible and supportive network of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and ally members of the campus community who have basic knowledge about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity and are able to provide support and referrals to members of the campus community.
