9th Annual LGBTQIA+ Student Welcome Reception

The Fall 2019 Safe Zone LGBTQIA+ Student Welcome Reception will be held at 4:30PM on Tuesday, August 27, 2019. This reception will be held in the Morris University Center in the Hickory/Hackberry Room. This event is sponsored by the office of the Vice-Chancellor of Student Affairs. Refreshments will be provided.

The primary purpose of this reception is to welcome new and continuing students, faculty, and staff members who are members of our LGBTQIA+ community on the campus. We invite all Allies to attend and contribute to this effort. We will share the collective accomplishments of Safe Zone and its allies over the last year and will highlight what is to come.

Safe Zone Training Requests

We are able to offer additional training sessions for our general ally training as well as more in-depth training around specialized topics. If you would like to request Safe Zone Training outside of our normal fall and spring semester training dates please submit a Safe Zone Training Request Form.

We Are One Grant!

The MUC is sponsoring 4 grants of $250 each fiscal year (July-June). Preference for grant dollars will be given to programs that have an educational component with an emphasis on developing learning and understanding for issues related to the GLBT community. A review of each grant will be performed by representatives from the University Center, Safe Zone Committee, and Kimmel Student Involvement Center with final approval by the Director of the University Center.
