Project Pride Student Organization

Students are welcome to participate in Project Pride! Project Pride is the  official LGBTQ Student Organization of Shoreline Community College. The group provides student support, workshops and activities that enhance the campus community's LGBTQ awareness, knowledge and skills.  Allies are welcome to join.

 

Campus Safe Zones

Shoreline is committed to creating an environment that is safe for all students.  A Safe Zone is a place where all people feel included, welcome and safe.  The SCC Safe Zone programs focuses on increasing the awareness, knowledge, skills regarding members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and ally (LGBTQIA) community. Safe Zones is a program identifying individuals in the school community who are safe and supportive allies of LGBTQIA students and faculty. An ally is  “a person who is a member of the dominant or majority group who works to end oppression in his or her personal and professional life through support of, and as an advocate with and for, the oppressed population” (Washington and Evans (1991, p. 195).  

 

Individuals participating in the Safe Zones program undergo training sessions and receive an identifying placard for their office or cubicle. Placement of the placard in their work space indicates that they have completed the Safe Zone training and are committed “to be an active and visible ally, can be trusted to maintain confidentiality, and will respond to the individual with understanding, support, and empathy (UW-QCenter).  Trainings are done throughout the year and can be scheduled upon request.  For more information, please contact  Yvonne Terrell-Powell at 206-546-4509 or yterrell@shoreline.edu.
