Safe Space Program

The Safe Space Program is a training presentation designed to educate persons who serve St. Cloud State and build a network of allies across campus who are knowledgeable and supportive of the LGBT community. The LGBT Resource Center is committed to creating programs and services that leave participants feeling empowered. The Safe Space Program is designed to educate participants about queer identity/issues and strategies for creating safe, inclusive, and supportive environments for all.

After completing the training, participants will receive a "Safe Space" sign to display in their offices. These easily recognizable signs visually communicate that the person displaying the Safe Space sign is committed to creating safe, inclusive, and supportive environments for the LGBTQQIIAAP individuals. April 4 was the final Safe Space Training for the 2016-17 academic year.
