August Events

Safe Zone Training

  • August 1, LA 116, 1-3pm
  • August 16, LA 116, 10am -12pm

Safe Zone training is about fostering an environment of inclusion for lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, allies, and asexual/nonsexual (LGBTQIA*) individuals on our campus and in the surrounding community. The training raises visibility and promotes ally building through:

    • Educating individuals on LGBTQIA* issues relating to gender and sexuality and how one can intervene when they witness discrimination.
    • Creating visibility of people who can provide resources to LGBTQIA* community members.
    • Creating a safe environment on campus free from restrictive transphobia, homophobia, heterosexism and cisgender bias.
    • Look for this sign in offices around campus to identify those who have completed Safe Zone training and who are committed to providing an inclusive environment for members of the LGBTQIA* community at UVU
