The Safe Zone program is designed to create a network of visible allies to people who identify as part of the 2SLGBTQIA+ campus community. These trainings provide information and resources related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Safe Zone trainees develop:

  • A deeper awareness of personal ideas, stereotypes, and assumptions related to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and asexual (2SLGBTQIA+) individuals
  • An increased comfort level in addressing concepts and language regarding 2SLGBTQIA+ communities with the university community and with individuals
  • An increased awareness of services on campus that support 2SLGBTQIA+ 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.
