A “Safe Space” for LGBT Concerns
Last week, approximately 25 faculty and staff members participated in a Safe Space workshop. The purpose of the Safe Space program at Chicago-Kent is to provide a “Safe Space” where people who have questions about gender and sexuality, whether in their own lives, in the lives of family and friends, or in the wider culture can go to discuss those issues. The two-hour workshop provided faculty and staff participants with resources to assist those who approach them with LGBT-related concerns. Those who attended the workshop will be identified by a “Safe Space” sticker hung on the door to their office or inside their office. In addition, those who participated will be listed on the Safe Space section of the Student Services webpage. Participants in the Safe Space program are considered “allies” and do not necessarily self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, but they are prepared to listen and respond to those with questions about related issues.
