University of Wisconsin-Platteville LGBTQ Support Group
University Counseling Services facilitates a support group twice per month for LGBTQ students. A safe, respectful environment is offered to process issues of concern, worry, or hope. Any LGBTQ student interested in attending the support group should send an email requesting further information to Deirdre Dalsing at University Counseling Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UWP Counseling Services offers the opportunity for LGBTQ students to speak privately and confidentially to a counselor regarding any issues, concerns or questions about sexual orientation, gender identity or hormone therapy. To schedule an appointment, call the Counseling Services office, 220 Royce Hall, 608.342.1865.
The Safe Zone program makes it possible to easily identify individuals who are empathetic and informed of LGBTQ issues and who are willing and able to provide support, information, and confidentiality. UW-Platteville enlists the help of faculty, staff and students to identify themselves and their space as “Safe Zones” so that anyone who needs to can feel free to be themselves and talk about or identify personal issues of concern. Safe Zone training is offered by the Doyle Center for Gender and Sexuality www.uwplatt.edu/doyle-center.
