Safe Zone Program

Students, staff and faculty who support and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community can go through our training program to visibly identify themselves as Safe Zone allies.

Register for a Workshop

We offer several workshops throughout each semester. Each workshop is held in RHUU 203. 

 

Registered Safe Zone Allies

See the list of individuals who are Safe Zone certified and have chosen to make their information public. 

Don't see yourself on the list?

We update the registry approximately twice a semester so it may take some time for you to be added. Your certification is active for three years following training. If you were trained more than three years ago and have not updated your status, you will not appear on our public registry. If you still think you should be on the list, email lgbtusc@mailbox.sc.edu.

 

Become a Safe Zone Ally

Attend a Training

We offer trainings multiple times every semester or we can arrange a special session for an individual group. Training sessions last three hours.

After your training you will be certified for three years. If you're comfortable with LGBTQ+ students approaching you to talk about issues, you may choose to display a Safe Zone decal in your office to let others know it is a safe place.

What is Safe Zone?

A program that builds safe space across campus by visibly identifying students, staff and faculty who support the LGBTQ+ population. The program also offers educational and ongoing engagement opportunities for allies to explore and understand issues related to the LGBTQ+ community.
