COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) — Columbus State University is seeking new ways to give students shelter and solace.
CSU's Counseling Center is spearheading the installation of a "safe space" system across campus.
Safe spaces are rooms or offices that guarantee students a place to be heard, respected and accepted.
Official CSU safe spaces are identified by a poster that reads "This room or office is a safe space."
Safe spaces are meant to provide an informal means of counseling by simply offering a quick stop for students to vent, ask questions, or get further resources and connections if needed.
