Sunsetting Safe Zone Training
The GSRC has decided to close the safe zone program here at UNC as of Fall 2023. Safe Zone was created in the early 90’s as a way to give basic information around Gender & Sexuality to individuals as well as provide small safe spaces where individuals knew that could come for help or support. Many things have changed since those early days, including our understanding of what “safety” means and how we can better support students across the Gender, Sexuality, & Romantic Identity Spectrums.
Due to the changing climate for students across the Gender, Sexual, and Romantic spectrums and the need for continual and ongoing education around gender and sexuality, we are now encouraging individuals to visit the Division of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion UNITE website to check out the robust DEI professional development opportunities. If you have any further questions or concerns about the Safe Zone program, please do not hesitate to contact our Director at Stephen.email@example.com.
