Welcome to the UMW Safe Zone program!
Mission: In keeping with the University’s Community values, UMW’s Safe Zone Program seeks to foster an environment which affirms an inclusive and supportive community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) citizens and allies, to create opportunities and resources to allow UMW to embrace the full range of diversities, and create maximum educational engagement for all. In keeping with these goals, the program seeks to educate its citizens, provide appropriate referrals, assess campus climate, and advocate for community members.
Trainings: The Safe Zone program offers workshops for faculty, staff, and students designed to help them become more informed and supportive allies for the LGBTQ community. At the end of the training, participants will have the opportunity to sign a pledge agreeing to comply with the Safe Zone mission and be given a Safe Zone sticker or button to display.
