Become a Safe Zone member by attending upcoming workshops

Two workshops will be held Nov. 5 for individuals in the campus community to become Safe Zone members.

The Safe Zone Program is a visible network of volunteers who are committed to creating a community of respect and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning students, staff, and faculty. Safe Zone makes it possible to easily identify individuals who are dedicated to an environment in which all people are free to thrive academically, professionally and personally.

Individuals interested in becoming Safe Zone members, should attend one of the two workshops held in the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences Room 320 B/C:

  • Monday, Nov. 5, from 9 a.m. to noon
  • Monday, Nov. 5, from 1 to 4 p.m.

RSVPs to are required and space is limited. When registering, indicate which session you would like to attend and whether you are a student, staff or faculty member.

Customized Safe Zone workshops also are available to departments or groups with a five-person minimum. Safe Zone will work with a group or department to find an ideal time. Contact Liz Roccoforte at
