Safe Zone

Safe Zone LogoJSU Safe Zone is a campus-wide program that works to ensure a welcoming environment for all gender identities and sexual orientations. By establishing an identifiable network of trained individuals committed to fostering an atmosphere of respect and inclusion, the program provides a safe space for members of the LGBTQ community and their Allies on campus.  Students can locate Safe Zone areas by locating a Safe Zone sticker on the door of an advocate.  JSU will offer basic and advanced Safe Zone training opportunities every semester to our JSU campus community.
