Every member of the UA Little Rock community deserves a safe and equitable campus environment. A committee of students, staff, and faculty are working together to provide Safe Zone training to the campus. Our mission is to improve the overall campus climate and to educate students, staff, and faculty about issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or questioning (LGBTQ+) individuals.
The purpose of the Safe Zone program is to provide campus “safe zones” where individuals affected by homophobia, hateful acts, and sexual violence can safely go for support and assistance from trained faculty and staff. By placing the Safe Zone symbol on their office door, desk, or backpack, Safe Zone allies signify that their space is a safe place to talk about issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community.
