Safe Zone Training
The Safe Zone Program at Parkside provides an avenue for faculty, staff, and student leaders to show their support of members of campus who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LGBTQ). The program was created to help reduce homophobia and heterosexism on campus -- making our campus a safer environment for all members of our community regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
To become Safe Zone trained you attend Safe Zone 101 (2½ hours) and either Safe Zone 201 - Ally, or Safe Zone 201 - Gender Identity (2 hours).
After the training and signing a contract, you are given a Safe Zone graphic to be placed on your doors/office, space, etc. This graphic signifies that your space is safe for LGBTQ individuals to be themselves and talk about LGBTQ issues.
