The UTM Positive Space Committee challenges the patterns of silence that continue to marginalize lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students, staff and faculty even in environments with anti-discriminatory and inclusive policies. It proactively creates opportunities to foster constituent awareness and engagement and promotes inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons in every area of campus life. The Positive Space Campaign exists to prevent particular negative occurrences from arising and to respond when they do occur.
Membership of the committee is open to all members of the University – students, staff, and faculty. Allies are encouraged to attend these meetings and participate in the campaign.
