Details

The Safe Space Allies Network enhances the ability of students, staff, administrators and faculty to proactively and personally demonstrate the University's core values of community, inclusion, and respect for all--regardless of sexual orientation or other identity. Grounded in Catholic Social Thought, the University's mission affirms that all human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society.

By displaying a Safe Space Ally emblem in their working and/or living areas, members of the university community provide visible markers of validation, support, and respect for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) communities. The sign serves as an indicator of people with whom LGBTQ+ and questioning people can speak openly and seek the support they need to succeed at the University of San Diego.

Training Content

Safe Space Allies are required to complete a two and a half-hour-long training. During the training participants will:

  • Explore anti-Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) bias in their lives;
  • Establish qualities of an effective ally and set boundaries for ally work;
  • Learn language for discussing LGBTQ+ issues and clarify terms and concepts regarding gender and sexuality;
  • Learn strategies for intervening in anti-LGBTQ+ bias; and
  • Learn strategies for being a supportive ally when someone comes out to them.
