It Gets Better

It Gets Better Project

Students, faculty, and staff contribute their voices to the It Gets Better Project, which aims to give hope to LGBT youth by rallying against hate and intolerance.

Whether it’s national coming out month, observance of The Day of Silence – a forum on religion and sexuality – or an event on LGBT aging, Widener makes sure its LGBT students feel supported and have access to the resources they need to be a leader not only in their respective career fields, but in life.

Safe Space Ally Program

The Safe Space Ally program offers numerous safe places on campus for students to come if they are experiencing any difficulties concerning bullying or harassment, the coming out process, gender identity, or related issues. These are judgment-free zones where trained allies will listen, assist students in working through an issue, and offer additional resources as needed.

"We're All Widener!"

When a variety of viewpoints are valued, explored, and seen as opportunities for learning and personal growth, we all benefit. In 2012, the university launched the "We're All Widener!" campaign to address the complexity of diversity at Widener. Our focus on diversity emphasizes three key principles:

  • We're all valued
  • We're all contributors
  • We're all Widener!

It Gets Better Project

To coincide with the It Gets Better Project, Widener students, faculty, and staff filmed a series of videos to show support for the cause, which aims to prevent suicide among LGBT youth. Visit Widener’s YouTube channel to view the videos.
