Safe Zone orientation session, November 30
Safe Zone provides students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to create safe spaces on campus that are highly visible and easily identifiable to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) persons.
During the two-hour Safe Zone orientation session, participants learn introductory LGBTQ+ vocabulary and concepts, engage in a mock coming-out exercise, practice ally skills, and receive resources. After the orientation session, participants have the opportunity to sign a Safe Zone Member Agreement that affirms their intention to serve as an ally to LGBTQ+ persons on campus. Participants are not required to sign the Member Agreement; they may attend only to increase their personal knowledge and awareness.
The last orientation session is from 10 a.m.-noon Friday, November 30, in 314 Student Services Building.
