Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

SafeSpace Initiative

To further Northeast Ohio Medical University’s commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students, faculty, staff, and guests, the University launched a SafeSpace initiative in 2013. The SafeSpace initiative is designed to provide dedicated resources to members of the LGBTQ+ community at NEOMED, their allies, family, and friends.

Members of the NEOMED community who wish to serve as trained advocates for the SafeSpace initiative will complete formal educational programming in order to be recognized as a resource for the initiative, providing a safe space for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff.
