Welcome

Welcome to SafeZone, a program designed to increase the overall campus community's understanding and awareness of issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA), as well as other marginalized persons. SafeZone was created to provide a more inclusive and accepting campus climate. The purpose of SafeZone is to provide safe spaces on campus that are highly visible and easily identifiable to all people as spaces where support and understanding are.  As well as allowing like-minded people to band together under one symbol that says they will provide support, a sensitive ear and a safe haven for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) community. It is a place of common understanding with a goal of equality and comfort.

SafeZone locations can be found by identifying the SafeZone symbol above the door of SafeZone Allies office/room.  SafeZone allies signify that within their space all people will be treated with respect regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, age or ability.
