Safe Zone Training

Safe Zone

SafeZone creates a network of allies who promote a campus environment that is open and welcoming to all LGBTQ students.

UNC Greensboro’s Safe Zone Training consists of three individual 3-hour workshops, titled: Safe Zone 1.0, Safe Zone 2.0, and Trans Zone. Each workshop builds upon knowledge gained from the previous workshops.

Individuals who have completed the program have the option to attend an additional 1-hour Train the Trainer workshop with an Office of Intercultural Engagement staff member in order to serve as a facilitator in partnership with our office.

Engaging with LGBTQ+ student groups and related programming helps reinforce the initial training, launch new ideas, discuss areas of concern, and work toward a more inclusive campus and community.
