Columbia University Could be Creating a Safe Space for LGBT Students

, Spencer Irvine, 1 Comment

It’s not confirmed yet, but it appears that the proposal for a safe space for LGBTQ students and students of color may be created in newly-vacated space in the Columbia University student center:

The designation of LGBTQ- and POC-only spaces on campus comes after numerous suggestions by students and a proposal that was unanimously approved by the Columbia College Student Council calling for more institutional support for minorities, according to The Columbia Spectator.

The proposal, which Campus Reform reported on earlier this year, called for “more institutional support, staff, resources, funding, and space for LGBTQ+ students, students of color, and those who hold combinations of these identities.”
