The CRC campus community is committed to creating a safe, open, and bias-free learning and working environment for everyone. The Safe Spaces Program is one way we are achieving this goal.
Cosumnes River College is an inclusive campus where students and staff respect the views of others. We strive to keep our campus community free of bias, discrimination, and intolerance. Safe Spaces on campus are where anyone who feels threatened or otherwise unsafe can seek assistance and support regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religious affiliation, citizenship or immigration status, veteran's status, or political views.
The Safe Spaces program works in conjunction with our police services, administration, and counseling center as an additional resource for individuals to discuss, and act upon, situations of intolerance and bias. Safe Spaces on campus are located in academic division/area offices, the Counseling Center, and individual staff and faculty offices displaying the Safe Spaces sticker.
