Faculty/Staff Safe And Trans Zone
SafeZone creates a network of allies who promote a campus environment that is open and welcoming to all LGBTQ students.

In the current online working format as a result of COVID-19, we have taken our Safe Zone Training Online. 

UNC Greensboro is proud to offer a three-part Safe Zone Training Program for both faculty/staff and various delivery options for students. Each workshop builds upon knowledge gained from the previous workshop. After completing these workshops, participants will receive a sticker as an outward display of their commitment to inclusion. 

Our new Safe and Trans Zone format is available via Canvas Course. You will need to log in to Canvas using your UNCG credentials, and use the link below to enroll in the course. If you have already completed Safe Zone 1.0 or 2.0, you can complete those quizzes to move on to Trans Zone.

You can also find supplementary assignments under the ‘Assignments’ tab on the left-hand sidebar.

The Importance of Juneteenth

Posted on Thursday, June 18th, 2020 by Daisy Santiago under OMA Webpage.

June 19, 1865 (Juneteenth) is a holiday that commemorates the end of slavery. Juneteenth is the most prominent Emancipation Day Holiday because although the Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1863 it took two and a half years for the word of slavery’s end to travel. This is a representation on how freedom and justice has always been delayed for black people.

Juneteenth represents freedom and an appreciation of African American History and Culture. There are several ways to honor this day. Continue Self Development. Use this day to reflect and educate yourself on the injustices against Black Americans.
