SafeZone: LGBTQ Support

SafeZone Logo

Mission:

SafeZone provides training to faculty, staff, and students to become better allies to the Point Park LGBTQ community.  SafeZone volunteers then provide spaces where LGBTQ individuals are assured a comfortable place to learn about resources and ask questions about the LGBTQ community, gender, and sexuality.

SafeZone volunteers are not counselors, but they are here to provide support and, if necessary, steer you towards additional help. 

Goals:

  1. SafeZone will provide training to faculty, staff, and student leaders to increase awareness and knowledge of LGBTQ issues, gender, and sexuality.
  2. SafeZone will prepare faculty, staff, and student leaders to interact with members of the LGBTQ campus community in a positive, supportive manner and to provide referrals and resources as necessary.
  3. SafeZone volunteers will create a visible atmosphere of support for LGBTQ individuals on campus by displaying the SafeZone logo in their work space or on a lapel pin and representing the program at student events.
  4. SafeZone volunteers will work with the Point Park Rainbow Club to increase LGBTQ educational and social events on campus.
