Safe Zones

Safe Zone logo

You are safe here. Safe Zones provide a safe space or refuge where campus community members can turn when their safety is immediately threatened, and/or they are experiencing bigotry of any kind.

Becoming a Safe Zone participant is voluntary and requires a serious commitment. The absence of a Safe Zone sign does not mean that an individual is “unsafe” but rather that circumstances have prevented them from committing to the formal Safe Zone Program.

Upcoming SafeZone Training!
