Joe Kelly, Ph.D, SafeZone Ally (CofC Board of Trustees meeting, 03/20/14)

"But I don't websitewant to speak for the GSA or for anyone else here. I urge the Board to do what I am resolving to do myself, and that's to speak to the gay and lesbian, bi-sexual, trans, and questioning members of our community, and to listen. We might begin by visiting the GSA Facebook page -- maybe attend a meeting or go through the SafeZone trainig, call someone on the phone and invite them to coffee. If you don't know what our friends and colleagues experience on our campus, please resolve to find out. Let's talk about inclusion, let's create real equality and let's promote a climate that coincides with our values."

Coming Together

A Safe Zone is a place where one can feel free to talk about being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, allied, asexual or intersex without fear of criticism or hatred. It is a place where one can feel not only supported, but affirmed and valued. Welcome to the College of Charleston Safe Zone!

The College of Charleston Safe Zone program is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services.
