LGBTQ+ Initiatives

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

All-Gender/Single Stall Restrooms

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

All-Gender/Single Stall toilet facilities may benefit transgender populations, people who exist outside of the gender binary, people with disabilities, the elderly, parents who wish to accompany their children to the restroom, and others. Please note, though, that it is your legal right to use whichever gendered toilet facility you align with.

Safe Zones

What is a Safe Zone?

Safe Zone is a community of people who will be understanding, supportive, and trustworthy of LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ individuals.

Recognized Safe Zone Advocates

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