Participant Roles

Everyone who participates in the Positive Space Campaign at Vancouver Island University is required to participate in an orientation session.  The purpose of the orientation is to bring to light issues that affect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, staff and faculty, and to introduce participants to resources that exist both on campus and in the Nanaimo community.  Once you have completed the orientation, you will receive a Positive Space symbol (in the form of a sticker and/or a tent card) to display in your work, study, or living space.  The symbol indicates that your space is a place to be open about issues of sexual orientation or gender identity without fear of homophobia or harassment.
