The Safe Zone program is designed to create a network of visible allies to people who identify as part of the LGBTIQA+ 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 (LGBTIQA) individuals
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 LGBTIQA 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.
