LGBTA Initiatives

Hawkeye Community College believes in providing an accepting environment for our individual differences.

Gender-Neutral/Family Bathroom

Every person is born with dignity and humanity, and that includes their gender expression. We practice that belief by creating welcoming and inclusive spaces.

Gender-neutral/Family toilet facilities benefit transgender populations and people who exist outside of the gender binary; as well as people with disabilities, the elderly, parents who may wish to accompany their children to the bathroom; and anyone else who may require the assistance of someone of another gender.

Location: Hawkeye Center, first floor and Hawkeye Center, second floor, across from the Bookstore.

Safe Zones

What is a Safe Zone?

Safe Zone is a community of people who will be understanding, supportive, and trustworthy if LGBTA people who need help, advice, or just someone to talk to.

The purpose of Safe Zone programs is to eliminate homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism on campuses.

The mission of Hawkeye Community College’s Safe Zone program is to educate supportive faculty, administrators and students to be competent and confident advocates for LGBTAQ+A individuals.

Recognized Safe Zone Advocates

Safe zone advocates will have the safe zone symbol displayed in their work space.
