Zone staff works with the Counseling Services, the Center for Advocacy, and Education (CARE), the LBGT Resource Center, the Office of Student Life, Non-Traditional & Veteran Student Services, The Student Access Center, International Student and Scholar Services, the Office of Institutional Equality, and other groups on-campus and off-campus to offer training for individuals and S.A.F.E. Zone Allies. 

 

What are S.A.F.E. Zone Workshops

Student, Administrators, Faculty, Staff, and Community Members receive concise and current education/ information to offer safe space for all who have experienced or feel threatened by violence, harassment, or micro- and macroaggressions. 

We are able to do this by offering two types of introductory workshops taliored for Faculty and Staff and for Student and Community Members along with advanced workshops offered monthly throughout the year.
