Safe Zone is a program designed to create a network of visible allies to people who identify as part of the diverse LGBTQ+ community. The four hour educational session provides information and resources related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Safe Zone Allies develop:
- A deeper awareness of personal ideas, stereotypes, and assumptions related to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and allied (LGBTIQA) students
- An increased comfort level in addressing concepts and language regarding LGBTIQA communities with the university community and with individuals
- An increased awareness of services on campus that support LGBTIQ and allied individuals
- A network of community and campus staff, faculty, and students to support people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions on campus
