The Student Engagement Center offers workshops for faculty, staff, and student leaders designed to help them become more sensitive and informed allies for the LGBTQIA+ community. At the completion of the workshop, participants will be offered the opportunity to sign a pledge agreeing to advance the Safe Zone mission and may receive a Safe Zone sticker to place in their workplace or where they live on campus, or a Safe Zone button, perfect for a jacket or backpack. Also, faculty, staff and student leaders may engage in advanced training and become certified to train others to be Safe Zone Allies.
What Does the Sticker Mean?
The display of the Safe Zone sticker or button means that the owner has attended a Safe Zone workshop and signed an agreement to be supportive and affirming of the LGBTQIA+ community. It does not mean that the owner identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, nor should it be inferred that those without Safe Zone stickers are unsupportive.
