The Positive Space Education Program: Level One now available!

Fleming College promotes an inclusive environment where the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, and more community (often represented by the acronym LGBT2SQ++) can feel safe from harassment and discrimination.

Positive Space is an informative, interactive program that is Co-Curricular Record eligible, and looks great on any resume. Open sessions are held regularly and promoted here on this page, via social media and college email channels. Please note, certificates are no longer provided for Positive Space.
