Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Support Network

 
 

The mission of the Safe Space Program is to support the campus in its efforts to foster a bias-free learning and working environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning persons through providing education and training for the campus community.Action Hero Day 2006

The Safe Space/ Allies program builds awareness of the issues affecting LGBTQ persons as well providing training to develop skills for allies. The program works to create more campus spaces where LGBTQ persons feel safe, supported, and valued as members of our college community. The program provides a 5-hour workshop for faculty, staff and students of the college. After completing the workshop, participants will be given the option to join the Safe Space network and display an official Oneonta Safe Space/ Ally symbol in their office space or residence hall room. The symbol signifies the individual's commitment to being a resource and an ally to LGBTQ persons.

**During the Spring 2014 Semester, the Safe Space program is being revamped!
