Safe Zone is a campus wide program designed to visibly identify students, staff, and faculty peers who support the LGBTQ population, understand some of the issues facing LGBTQ individuals, and are aware of the various LGBTQ resources. The mandatory three hour training session provides a foundation of knowledge needed to be an effective ally to LGBTQ students and those questioning their sexuality. Campus wide trainings are offered multiple times every semester, but training sessions can be arranged for other groups if requested.
This one and a half hour training session seeks to build the capacity of participants to help create an inclusive spaces for NYU LGBTQ community members. Individuals who complete this training and then choose to post a Safe Zone card should be comfortable with LGBTQ students approaching them to talk about LGBTQ related issues, or to help students find campus or local resources.
