Safe Zone Friend
Learn more about campus resources, lesbian gay bisexual transgender (LGBTQ+) identity terms & ways to support.
Safe Zone Advocate
UPDATE 9/2/21: The LGBT Center will not offer Safe Zone Advocate trainings this year while we perform a curriculum audit. Safe Zone Friend will still be offered. Thank you for your understanding!
Building upon learnings from Friend, Safe Zone Advocate will explore how unconscious bias and microaggressions may create unsafe spaces for LGBTQ+ people and engage with scenarios to learn to respond to interpersonal bias.
