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 Student Safe Zone Training consists of of two individual workshops, titled: Safe Zone and Trans Zone. Each workshop builds upon knowledge gained from the previous workshop. After completing both workshops, participants will receive a sticker as an outward display of their commitment to inclusion. Individuals who complete the program and want to become a facilitator have the option to attend an additional 1-hour Train the Trainer workshop with an OIE staff member.

UNC Greensboro’s Faculty/Staff 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 (dates below). 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.

If you are looking to schedule a private Safe Zone Workshop, we are more than happy to accommodate these requests. We ask that you have a minimum of 8-10 people.
