The purpose of the Safe Zone Project is to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students.

The Safe Zone Project prepares members of the campus community to serve as resources for LGBTQ people, and through education, to work to decrease homophobia and heterosexism. 

Principles

Members of the Safe Zone Project:

  • Affirm the basic human dignity of all members of the campus community, regardless of sexual and gender orientations. They affirm the basic tenant that sexual and gender orientations are not determined by simple choice.
  • Serve as supports for students who are coming out, and they are resources for members of the campus community of all sexual and gender orientations.
  • Publicly identify themselves as participants in the program by displaying the Safe Zone flier.
  • Strive to address homophobia and heterosexism as they encounter it.
  • Participate in the initiatives and advocate for policies that support the equal rights of LGBTQ community members.
  • Recognize that issues surrounding the LGBTQ people are not simple and are open to questions and continuing dialogue.
  • Are willing to continue to educate themselves about LGBTQ issues.
