About This Guide

This guide details a targeted cleanup project on the library's LGBTIQ books, as well as for finding resources through the library and online. 

Safe Zone

"The purpose of Safe Zone is to reduce homophobia and heterosexism on the UAS campus, making our campus a safer and freer environment for all members of our community regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  Safe Zone prepares primarily staff and faculty members to serve as a resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning issues, and also strives to educate the campus community about the Safe Zone program."

The best place for LGBTIQ resources and help at UAS is Safe Zone, with links to articles, community and online resources, and local information. Rather than reproduce all of this information here, head on over to Safe Zone and check out their tabs!

UAS Named One of the Top LGBTQ-Friendly Online Schools

In 2017 UAS was named the best school in the state for LGBTQ students, and the campus was quite proud of that fact. Yet at the same time, students were still noticing underlying problems that needed to be addressed - such as, in the library collections. For more on the work that came about from the interaction of the Campus Inclusivity Alliance and the library, see our Library Refresh tab.
