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.
