Safe Zone!

The Safe Zone program is a voluntary network of faculty, staff, and student allies to LGBT people to increase safety and create a more supportive campus environment for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) community on college campus. It’s dedicated to creating a welcoming environment for all members of the university community regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, language, gender and gender expression, sexuality, religious and political beliefs, age, and ability. The university stands against all forms of discrimination and oppression, whether directed against individuals or groups. The ultimate goal and importance of the program is to educate students, staff and faculty on how to create a supportive atmosphere for LGBT members, to ensure that the community is treated with respect regardless of what you represent, and to raise awareness in the university community of its collective responsibility to work against bias, prejudice, and bullying.  Be an advocate of Safe Zone and make a difference in your college community, encouraging others to get involved and understand that we all are different in every way.
