Safe Zone

What is Safe Zone?
Safe Zone is a program which identifies faculty and staff who will provide empathy, acceptance, support and resources for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning students. The Safe Zone symbol posted in an individual's workspace lets students and staff know they can go to that person for help, for advice, or to talk confidence with a person who will be supportive and accepting. This symbol also means that biased and offensive actions and comments will be addressed in an educational and informative manner.
