Become an Ally

Do You Want To Become A Safe Zone Ally?

To become an Ally, you will need to:

  • Attend one Introduction to Safe Zone Session every 3 years
  • Retain your ally status by attending at least one Safe Zone topic-specific training session each semester

 At the Safe Zone Introductory training, you will hear from representatives from The Office of Student Life, The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education (CARE), the LGBT Resource Center, and the Office of Institutional Equity. Each person will give a quick presentation about the resources offered through their office and be able to answer any questions. The rest of the session will cover basic helping skills such as active listening and how to make referrals. You will become an ally upon completion of an introductory training session.
