SAFE Zone Nurturing Spaces of Belonging for All.

SAFE Zone acknowledges the intersectionality across the human difference continuum by educating and fostering respect for multifaceted personal identities (e.g., sexuality, gender identity, class, religion, ability status, national origin, cultures, creed, and other preferences). SAFE Zone Allies utilize campus-wide and community resources to assure physical, emotional, and mental health safety measures and practices.

At Kansas State University we deeply value our Principles of Community. As such, SAFE Zone classses help to provide information and help hold the K-State community accountable to those standards.

Who are SAFE Zone Allies?

Allies can be any trained faculty, staff, student, or community member at Kansas State University and in the Manhattan area. People in various departments, majors, and fields across campus and Manhattan are encouraged to become a SAFE Zone Ally.

After your SAFE Zone ally sessions, you may place a SAFE Zone sticker or button on an office door, backpack, laptop, or any public place. SAFE Zone allies signify they are someone who will support and advocate for people with who may be of a historically excluded, marginalized, or silenced identities.
