Safe Space Program

The St. Norbert College Safe Space Ally program is a network of faculty, staff and students, who are committed to providing support to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer) students on campus.

The Safe Space Ally program will accomplish this by: 

  • Providing formal training on key concepts and terminology; increasing awareness of experiences of students who are LGBTQ; and offering guidance on how to serve as a source of support, share information or provide referrals.
  • Allowing individuals who choose to be allies (after completing the Safe Space Ally training) to display the Safe Space Ally placard as a visible symbol of their personal commitment to LGBTQ students.
  • Creating a network of Safe Space Allies across campus to help and support LGBTQ students.

With our growing network of Safe Space Allies, you will see yellow Safe Space Ally placards displayed across campus. These signify the person has completed a Safe Space training.

Our six qualified trainers offered a dozen training sessions throughout the year for members of the SNC community wanting to know more about how to be an ally.

Currently, there are approximately 80 people from a cross section of faculty, staff and students who have chosen to be listed on our Safe Space Ally Roster. Click here to view the roster.
