Safe Zone workshops at UCM offer information on LGBTQIA+ identities, terminology, ally development, and ways to support LGBTQIA+ students on our campus, and are based on the national Safe Zone Project model.
Anyone in the UCM community can attend a Safe Zone workshop and become a Safe Zone ally, including staff, faculty, graduate assistants, and students. We hope that community members of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions will participate!
Participants are asked 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 LGBTQIA+ communities and individuals, and a person who is committed to creating an environment free of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, heterosexism, and bias.
Workshops will include campus and community resources to prepare you be ready to help students at UCM to feel safe and supported.
