Safe Zone is a campus wide program designed to visibly identify students, staff, and faculty who support the LGBTQ population, understand some of the issues facing LGBTQ individuals, and are aware of various LGBTQ resources. The three hour training session provides a foundation of knowledge needed to be an effective ally to LGBTQ students and those questioning their sexuality and gender identity.
All Steinhardt faculty, administrators, staff, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students, of all departments, are invited to participate.
This three hour training session provides a foundation of knowledge needed to be an effective ally to LGBTQ students. Individuals who complete this training and then choose to post a Safe Zone card should be comfortable with LGBTQ students approaching them to talk about LGBTQ related issues, or to help students find campus or local resources.
