What is the Positive Space Network?

The Positive Space Network (PSN) is an education program dedicated to promoting and maintaining a campus environment embracing of gender and sexual diversity and their various intersections. This program for students, faculty, and staff, aims to reduce homophobia and transphobia, increase individual and organizational knowledge, and create safer spaces across campus. By offering a multi-level, modular program, the PSN is able to reach those with less knowledge on the topics covered, as well as those who have more experience with them.

Why should you participate?

Because you care about creating a safer community on campus for everyone, and increasing the visibility of folks who are dedicated to making this a reality.
