The Safe Zone program has been created to address the needs of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender students, faculty, staff and their allies. The program consists of training for students, faculty and staff to become safe zones. These individuals are there to listen and refer as well as be a safe space for others to share concerns, joys and experiences that they may not feel comfortable sharing in another setting.

For more information or to become a safe zone please contact:
