Diversity – Safe Space
Safe Space is a Safe Place
Safe Space is a nationally recognized program supported in many public school systems, colleges, and universities. Delta College Safe Space consists of a dedicated team of administrators, faculty, and staff members who are committed to providing a safe haven, a listening ear, and support for anyone dealing with issues related to sexual orientation and gender expression.
The team also educates themselves and the college community on current issues facing the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) population. To become a recognized "ally" in the Safe Space program, individuals take part in a three-hour information session and sign a Safe Space agreement.
To help the Delta College community identify them, Allies are given Safe Space display logos, showing that they are a person who is knowledgeable about LGBTQ issues and resources and are willing to assist in a variety of ways. Safe Space is not created to be a counseling program, but rather an avenue through which allies can actively show their support for LGBTQ people at Delta College.
More information can be found on the LGBT Resources webpage.
