Safe Space Program
The Safe Space Program identifies faculty, staff and students who have attended a Safe Space Program session. Program participants work to end homophobia and heterosexism on campus and create a visible network of support for the LGBTQ community. Some of the people who display the sticker or button identify as part of the LGBTQ community, while others are allies to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning individuals.
If someone does not have a Safe Space sticker/button, it does not necessarily mean they are not LGBTQ affirming. Only individuals who have gone through the Safe Space Program are able to display the sticker/button. If you don’t see a sticker on an office, look for other signs that the space is safe (i.e. rainbow flags, LGBTQ-themed books, etc).
