This week, library staff will have 2 opportunities to attend Sycamore Safe Zone Workshops, being held in the Library July 12 and 13.
Sycamore Safe Zone is an initiative through the Office of Diversity at Indiana State University to help make our campus a safe and affirming place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (or LGBTQ) students, faculty and staff. A Sycamore Safe Zone workshop provides education on LGBTQ issues and enhances participants’ capacity to be an ally to LGBTQ individuals. Upon completion of a workshop the participant earns the designation of a Sycamore Safe Zone ally and is given an emblem to display in an office, residence hall room, or on a backpack. Sycamore Safe Zone is just one step of many that is being taken by Indiana State University to achieve its vision of embracing diversity.
