SafeZone: LGBTQ+ Support
SafeZone provides training to faculty, staff and student leaders to help them become better allies to the Point Park LGBTQ+ community. SafeZone volunteers provide spaces where LGBTQ+ individuals are assured a comfortable place to learn about resources and ask questions about the LGBTQ+ community, gender, and sexuality.
SafeZone volunteers are not counselors, but they are available to provide support and connections to additional help both on and off campus.
- SafeZone will provide training to faculty and staff to increase awareness and knowledge of LGBTQ+ issues, gender, and sexuality.
- SafeZone will prepare faculty and staff to interact with members of the LGBTQ+ campus community in a positive, supportive manner and to provide referrals and resources as necessary.
- SafeZone volunteers will create a visible atmosphere of support for LGBTQ+ individuals on campus by displaying the SafeZone logo in their work space or on a lapel pin and representing the program at student events.
- SafeZone volunteers will work with Point Park University's Gender and Sexuality Spectrum Alliance to increase LGBTQ+ educational and social events on campus.
Stop in anywhere you see the SafeZone logo around campus. SafeZone Volunteers are eager to assist you in any way they can.
