Safe Zone Training
The purpose of safe zone is to create a safe, inclusive, and positive educational environment for the entire Salem State University community, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Safe zone is a voluntary program designed to reduce prejudice and discrimination, as well as create a safe and affirming environment for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Participants in the program display a safe zone symbol (ex. on an office door or backpack) to show support and understanding of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) community.
Anyone who is interested in attending a training to become an ally can join: faculty, students, administration, support staff, alumni, and community members. The training to become a member of Salem State University's safe zone program will provide each member with the tools necessary to be an effective GLBT ally.
