The Trinity Safe Space Program is Trinity's visible support network for the LGBTQ community.
Currently, we do not have dates for fall training. However, in the spring semester we hope to launch and offer an online safe space module for faculty and staff in order to become trained.
The mission of the Trinity College Safe Space program is to create a more hospitable and welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer and intersex (LGBTQI). The main goal of safe space training is to educate and promote the need for respect, equality, and support for the LGBTQ+ Trinity community.
Trinity’s Safe Space program was initiated in the Spring of 2000 by the Women & Gender Resource Action Center (WGRAC) and is now a campus wide LGBTQ diversity program offered by the Trinity Queer Resource Center. Since its inception hundreds of faculty, staff, and students have participated in campus Safe Space trainings and joined the program by displaying a Safe Space sticker on their office or residence halls as symbol of program membership.
Student leaders, faculty, and staff that go through Safe Space Training routinely are updated and are able to go through other training to remain up to date to help serve our LGBTQ+ community.
The QRC offers 3 to 4 general campus trainings each semester that are open to all Trinity students, staff, and faculty. In addition to those we can also schedule special group training requests.
The Trinity Safe Space Program is organized and sponsored by the Queer Resource Center.
