Safe Space is a multi-faceted educational intervention supported by the division of Student Affairs that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and ally (LGBTQIA) campus community members. The program impacts Chapman University both environmentally and culturally through its commitment to creating a welcoming environment for all LGBTQIA community members.
Chapman Safe Space members publicly display their support for the LGBTQIA community. They also designate given areas or offices as “safe spaces” and provide a listening ear and support for LGBTQIA community members who are dealing with issues related to sexual orientation and/or gender identity/gender expression.
Chapman Safe Space offers various trainings and workshops including:
- Safe Space Training
- Faculty and Staff Safe Space Training
- LGBTQ 101 Training
- Greek Allies 101 Training
- Safe Space Advanced Training
