The UB Safe Space program helps to make the UB campus a safer and more free environment for all members of our community, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. 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. UB Allies can also provide resources for LGBTQ identified persons on campus.
Allies can be identified by their UB Safe Space placard in their office and/or working areas. The sign serves as an indicator of people with whom LGBTQ people can speak openly and seek the support they need to succeed at the University of Baltimore.
