Description:

Carleton University Safer Space Program (CUSSP) is an important university-wide initiative to reduce the impact of homophobia and transphobia on campus and to increase the visibility of supportive people and positive spaces for the LGBTQ community on campus. By creating a resource network and identifying LGBTQ positive people and spaces we can work proactively to better the lives of all members of the university.

Objectives:

  • To show commitment for Carleton University’s policy to provide a responsive and open environment that is safe for, and inclusive of LGBTQ community
  • To increase the visibility of positive and supportive people and spaces for LGBTQ community
  • To provide a safe space for LGBTQ community who are questioning their sexual and gender orientations, or those who have been discriminated against because of their identities

Who Should Participate?

Any staff or faculty member is encouraged to participate in the program. Participants have a respect for people of any sexual and gender orientations and want to see a community that has safe spaces for all people regardless of these identities. Anyone is welcome to participate regardless of sexual or gender orientation. Whether or not you identify as a member of the LGBTQ community, all participants share a desire to learn more about our community and work together to remove discrimination and oppression.
