Stephen F. Austin State University


Counseling Services values maintaining an atmosphere of openness and trust. We affirm the unique identities of our students and are always striving to maintain an environment where everyone is welcomed and appreciated.

We encourage you to explore the services we have to offer. During the Fall and Spring semesters we offer LGBTQ+ support groups. Please contact us to find out more!




A Safe Space is a welcoming, supportive, and safe environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students. Safe Space Ally Training is designed to help campuses create a safe space for LGBTQ students. One of the most effective ways to create a safe space is to be a supportive ally to LGBTQ students.

Counseling Services would appreciate the opportunity to provide Safe Space Ally Training for your department, residence hall, organization, or class. For more information, please contact Counseling Services at (936) 468-2401. To request a Safe Space Ally Training, please complete the Presentation Request Form.
