SAFE ZONES
at
KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY

K-State wants to provide a safe and equitable environment for every member of our community. We are a large campus, however, and it can be unclear for some people who they can turn to with concerns.  The SAFE ZONE program (Acronym: Students, Administrators and Faculty for Equality) - with designated SAFE ZONES on campus - was created to more easily identify persons, programs, and services that have made a special commitment to enhancing the quality of the K-State environment.

PURPOSE:
The purpose of the SAFE ZONE program is to provide SAFE ZONES where members of our campus community can show their support for individuals affected by homophobia, hate, sexual violence. By placing the SAFE ZONE symbol on their door or showing the symbol to others, SAFE ZONE allies signify that their space is a safe place to talk about issues which impact people who have been affected by any type of hate/hate crime, LGBT individuals, and women who are affected by sexual violence/sexual harassment, and related issues. 

See SAFE ZONE for more information and to register for the SAFE ZONE training. The SAFE ZONE program is located at the Women's Center, 206 Holton Hall. For further information contact mtodd@ksu.edu - Please type "SafeZone question" in e-mail subject line

LOOK FOR THIS SIGN IF YOU NEED HELP AND ARE

  • Affected by hateful behavior,
  • Gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-gendered, or
  • A woman affected by sexual abuse, violence, and/or harassment.

People displaying this sign can listen, support, and assist you in getting the help you need.
