Safe Zone is a program offered jointly by the UCM Counseling Center & the Coordinator for LGBTQ Communication and Outreach (GA in the MAPS office).

This workshop offers information on LGBTQ+ identities, terminology, ally development, and ways to support LGBTQ+ students on our campus.

In additional to reviewing the manual linked below, SAFE ZONE training includes a 2-hour workshop conducted by both a member of the Counseling Center staff and the LGBTQ GA.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at:

Who can participate in the program?

Anyone in the UCM community can be a Safe Zone participant, including faculty, staff, graduate assistants, and students. It is hoped that community members of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions will become participants.

What is expected of Safe Zone participants?

Participants are expected to display the Safe Zone symbol in a visible location in their office, cubicle, room, etc. The Safe Zone symbol identifies you as someone who is a supporter of LGBTQ community members and someone who is committed to creating an environment free of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, heterosexism, and bias.

How do I become a Safe Zone participant?

Anyone can request a Safe Zone training by using the registration form at the top of this page. If you have any difficulties, please email us at or call 660-543-4060. After completing a training and reviewing this manual, you will be prepared to post the symbol in a visible location so that community members know that you are informed about and sensitive to LGBTQ issues and concerns.
