What is SafeZone?
SafeZone programs are typically designed to teach people how
to be supportive allies to lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgendered
persons (GLBT). SafeZone programs work to create a
more accepting and supportive campus climate for
GLBT students by preparing members of the campus community, primarily
faculty and staff, to serve as educational resources and supports
to GLBT students and GLBT issues.
