Safe Zones

Rowan University is committed to building an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students and employees. The Safe Zone Training program hosted by the LGBTQIA+ Center in the office of Social Justice, Inclusiona, and Conflict Resolution is designed to specifically support the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/question, intersex, and agender/asexual community members. Safe Zones serve as a visual representation to all that the person or office displaying the symbol is understanding, supportive, and a resource for LGBTQ identifying people and allies seeking help, advice, or just someone they can talk to. The symbol also means that homophobic and heterosexist comments and actions will not be tolerated in the space and will be addressed in an educational manner.

The safe zone symbols reflect that the individual displaying the symbol has taken the time to attend the Safe Zone training to learn and discuss ways to be supportive of the LGBTQIA+ community at Rowan University.
