Creating safe spaces for everyone.
The UB Safe Space program helps make campus a more safe environment for all members of our community, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Meet our allies. Our members, also known as allies, are students, faculty and staff who support and respect members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) community. UB Allies have been trained to understand sexual orientation and gender identity issues, including the implications of coming out and how to address discrimination and harassment on campus. These allies can also provide resources for LGBTQ-identified people on campus.
Look for the signs. Allies can be identified by a UB Safe Space placard in their office and/or working areas. The sign serves as an indicator of allies with whom LGBTQ-identified people can speak openly and seek the support they need to succeed at UB.
