Safe Space

Purpose

The Safe Space program advances one of Georgia College's guiding principles of “instilling respect for human diversity and individuality,” by affirming people of all sexual and gender identities and lessening the prejudice that limits the university experience and well-being of LGBTQ+ identified students, faculty, staff, facility members, and administrators.

In a location bearing the Safe Space logo(seen below), individuals will find a compassionate person committed to cultivating an open, inclusive atmosphere of caring and support through active listening, informed feedback, referrals, and advocacy at GC and in the community.

Safe Space Participants Are:

  • Faculty, staff, students, facility members and administrators;
  • LGBTQ+ and Ally GC community members who are informed about campus and community resources;
  • From a variety of religious and spiritual backgrounds;
  • Respectful of confidentiality;
  • Supportive of the right of all people to participate fully, equally, and openly in the life of this community.

 

Three Goals:

  • Awareness:  Gain insights into the lives and experiences of LGBTQ+ people and self
  • Knowledge:  Gain knowledge on facts relating to LGBTQ+ issues
  • Action:  Bring awareness and knowledge to create positive change

 

Sessions

Our Safe Space Program is currently under renovation - be on the lookout in Spring 2018 for sessions!
