Safe Zone

Safe Zone trainings are opportunities for Faculty and Staff to earn professional development credit for taking the initiative to learn about LGBTQIA+ identities, genders and sexualities, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege.

LGBTQIA+ folx sometimes question whether they will feel safe, welcomed, or supported in new environments. Faculty and staff who get trained in the Safe Zone curriculum receive Safe Zone stickers and signature icons which, when displayed, communicate to others a commitment to making and creating inclusive environments for LGBTQIA+ peoples.

The University Safe Zone program follows a tailored curriculum adapted from The Safe Zone Project. This curriculum is updated bi-annually to ensure the curriculum stays relevent to current scholarly knowledge and trends occurring within the community. If you have an interest in becoming a Safe Zone trainer or committee member, please contact the Associate Director of LBGTQA Initiatives at efriedma@fiu.edu and see the training schedule below.
