Safe Zone workshops to be held Feb. 18; register now to become a member

Two workshops will be held in February for students, faculty and staff interested in becoming members of Safe Zone.

The Safe Zone Program is a visible network of volunteers who are committed to creating a community of respect and dignity for lesbian, 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.

Two workshop sessions will be offered; participants only need to attend one session to become a Safe Zone member. Sessions will be held on Monday, Feb. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon or from 1 to 4 p.m. Both sessions will be held in Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences 320 B/C.

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

Customized Safe Zone workshops also are available to departments or groups with a five-person minimum. For more information or to find a time that works for a group or department, contact Liz Roccoforte at
