Affinity Spaces

Affinity spaces are a place to gather around a common and shared identity and talk about your experiences with like-minded individuals. Each affinity space will have a specific identity and encourage only people who identity with that identity will be in that space.

Safe Space Training

The Safe Space Training educates St. Cloud State people and builds a network of allies who are knowledgeable and supportive of the LGBT+ community.

The training tackles queer and trans identity/issues and strategies for creating safe, inclusive and supportive environments.

After completing the training, participants receive a "Safe Space" sign to display in their offices. By displaying this sign, it shows one is committed to establishing an environment of solidarity and working to combat prejudice and discrimination towards LGBT+ folk.
