Safe Space Ally 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 LGBTQ individuals; and offering guidance on how to serve as a source of support
  • Requiring a re-commitment of allies each year, asking allies to grow in their role through activities such as additional training, self- evaluation of biases, attending LGBTQ events, speaking out, and/or modeling behavior.
  • Creating a network of Safe Space Allies (students, faculty and staff) across campus to help and support LGBTQ students.

How Do I Find a Safe Space Ally?

  • Look for an 'I AM AN ALLY' sign. They are ORANGE this year (2022-23). These signify the person has completed the required Safe Space training and has agreed to be an ally.

About the Training and Becoming an Ally

  • These trainings are open to anyone, regardless of whether you choose to serve as an Ally or not.
  • Both Safe Space 1.0 LGBTQ Allyship Workshop and Safe Space 2.0 trainings are required to serve as an Ally. 
  • Training opportunities are available each semester, and likely in the summer as well.
