Safe space


USQ Library is committed to working with Student Success and Wellbeing to provide a visible and inclusive safe space for students and staff who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer or questioning (LGBTIQ).

Our aim is to ensure our LGBTIQ community can work and study in an environment free from harassment or discrimination based on their sexuality, gender identity, or gender expression.

Library staff have received USQ Ally training, and can refer students and staff to a range of support networks, especially at times when Student Success and Wellbeing services are not available.

USQ is also committed to promoting a supportive and inclusive educational environment. The Library LGBTIQ safe space is a visible and inclusive safe place for our LGBTIQ staff and students.
