Safe Space training to return

The GSRC is excited to announce that Safe Space training has been revamped and is available for the campus community this Fall!

The Oneonta Safe Space Program builds awareness of the issues affecting LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, etc.) people as well as providing training to the campus community to develop skills for allies. The program works to create more campus spaces where LGBTQIA+ people and their allies feel safe, supported, and valued as members of our college community.

After completing the 101-style training, participants will be given the option to join the Safe Space Ally Network and display an official Oneonta Safe Space symbol in a visible location. The symbol signifies the individual’s commitment to being a resource and an ally to LGBTQIA+ people.

The sticker has been updated as part of the rebranding and updating the program. Keep an eye out for it!

There are monthly training sessions available for students and employees. For all dates and times available and to RSVP, please look on Campus Connection. Space is limited, so plan ahead!

If there are any questions, please contact Emily Phelps, Assistant Director for Student Life & Leadership/GSRC at Emily.Phelps@oneonta.edu. More information is available online as well.
