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.

UNC Greensboro, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, and Guilford College are teaming up to present the 9th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m. via Zoom.
This year’s theme is “Student Activism: Then and Now.” The event will feature a panel of student activists from all three institutions.
Edmond Gayton from UNCG, Arthur Claiborne from N.C. A&T, and Mariam Sheriff from Guilford College will share their experiences with activism and how their respective institutions and campus leaders can help facilitate and support their work. La’Tonya Wiley, senior interpreter at the International Civil Rights Center and Museum, will serve as moderator for the panel.
In addition to the panel discussion, the program will include recorded spoken word performances by students from each campus: Nyazjah Spruel from UNCG, Damien Bell from N.C. A&T, and Erin Jeffers from Guilford College.
“We are thrilled that this year’s MLK Celebration will feature so many student voices from across the Triad,” said Augusto Peña, director of UNCG’s Office of Intercultural Engagement. “It has truly been a team effort to bring together the talents, ideas, and service of our student leaders to consider student activism across these last several decades.”
The annual event is typically held in person, on campus each year. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be held online, and changes have been made to the program to better accommodate a virtual environment.
The virtual celebration, like past events, is free and open to the public, and members from the local community are encouraged to view the discussion and performances. The event will be accessible via racialequity.uncg.edu.
