What is Safe Zone?

Safe Zone is a nation-wide program committed to assisting colleges and universities in creating a safer, more welcoming, and inclusive environment for individuals who identify as members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ+) community.

By attending a training to become a Safe Zone Ally, you are indicating to the campus community that you will be a source of support and advocacy for LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty on our campus. In addition, by affiliating with Safe Zone, you will be identifying yourself as an individual who is available to the campus community to talk about their concerns, whether they are of acknowledged LGBTQ+ community members, or those questioning their sexuality or gender identity/expression, or concerns of allies.


Health and Wellness Services hosts two free Safe Zone trainings annually for students, staff, and faculty.  We strongly encourage all members of the campus community to attend so that we may better serve the students on campus by creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all.
