The Michigan Tech Safe Place Program

Purpose and Guiding Assumptions

Safe Place is about fostering an environment of inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA*) individuals on our campus and in the surrounding community through:
  • Educating individuals on LGBTQIA* issues relating to gender and sexuality and how one can intervene when they witness discrimination.
  • Creating visibility of people who can provide resources to LGBTQIA* community members.
  • Establishing brave spaces that challenge institutional and interpersonal oppression.
