Fundamentals: Safe Zone Session

The Safe Zone program’s mission is to promote awareness and improve the campus climate through educational opportunities that train participants on issues faced by LGBTQIA+ individuals and those with marginalized gender and sexual identities, advocacy and intervention skills, intersectionality, and creating welcoming and supportive spaces for LGBTQIA+ students, those with marginalized gender and sexual identities, student allies, and all members of the UIS community. For more information about the Safe Zone program, check out our website.

Upon completing Fundamentals and two advanced sessions, participants become members and receive a Safe Zone sign. To become fully certified, members should complete all advanced sessions.
