Northampton supports the equal treatment of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. We believe all members of our campus community should feel comfortable being themselves. To ensure a welcoming environment, the college created Safe Space.
When you walk around campus, you will find the Safe Space logo in many offices. The logo identifies faculty and staff members with resources, sensitivity, and understanding toward the LGBT community.
