Safe Zones

 

The CBU Safe Zone Program supports LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersexed, asexual or ally) students. Safe Zones provide spaces where LGBTQIA students can find support and information, free of judgment and hostility. Moreover, the Safe Zone Program aims to promote a campus environment where LGBTQIA students feel welcomed, affirmed, safe, and protected from harassment and homophobia.

Safe Zones provide safe and confidential havens where you can discuss questions or issues related to sexuality or gender. Safe Zone Allies will listen to your concerns and, if necessary or helpful, refer you to additional resources on campus or in the community.

Safe Zones are marked with the Safe Zone logo and a certificate confirming allies’ completion of Safe Zone training and their availability to CBU community members.

For more information about Safe Zones, contact Dr. Emily Holmes, Chair of the CBU Safe Zone Program Committee, at emily.holmes@cbu.edu. Otherwise, feel free to stop by any Safe Zone if you have questions! They’re here for you.
