Safe Zones

While on campus, look for this sign that designates a safe zone.

To diminish the discrimination of LGBTQ students, many colleges and universities have established Safe Zone programs. Safe Zone training culminates in public identification of allies by placing a "safe" symbol on office doors or within various spaces. The Safe Zone symbol indicates that an ally has been properly trained on LGBTQ issues, terminology, and ways to support those in need.

The following FIT departments have currently been Safe Zone trained:

  • Deans' Offices
  • Counseling Services
  • Health Services
  • Athletics and Recreation
  • Equal Opportunity Program
  • Department of Student Life
  • Residential Life

Additionally, numerous individuals across campus have completed Save Zone training and display "safe" symbols on their office doors.
