What is Safe Zone?
Safe Zone, a campus-wide initiative sponsored by Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Human Resources, is focused on increasing visibility of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and their allies on campus. This network of students, faculty and staff value diversity and, more specifically, are supportive and affirming of the LGBT community.
Safe Zone provides educational activities and trainings, as well as opportunities to discuss issues important within the LGBT and ally community.
The mission of Safe Zone is to affirm the LGBT community by promoting awareness and visibility through education, support and advocacy with the goal of creating a culture that celebrates diversity and fosters respect and equality for all students, faculty, and staff of the University of Texas at Arlington.
