SAFE ZONE is a national concept in which safe spaces are identified and marked with a symbol unique to each campus. By displaying the SAFE ZONE logo on a department door, office or desk, Allies show that they value a diverse campus community, are willing to foster a safe place for others, and are committed to offer support, resources, and guidance.

You can become a SAFE ZONE Ally by attending Ally Training. Ally Training provides a venue for LGBT+ people, Allies and participants to express concerns, ask questions, and learn about issues affecting the LGBT+ campus and surrounding community. After completion of the training, participants will receive a certificate, SAFE ZONE logo, resources, and will be equipped with the tools necessary to:

  • Respond appropriately
  • Know resources and/or where to find them
  • Show support and safeguard the rights of LGBT+ people
  • Examine your own attitudes, behaviors, and values, and to challenge others to do the same
  • Appreciate and value the contributions of LGBT+ people

Currently, the Galerstein Gender Center holds two Ally Trainings per semester, which provides a venue for LGBT+ people, Allies and participants to express concerns, ask questions, and learn about issues affecting the LGBT+ campus and surrounding community.
