Safe Zone Workshops:
Creating a More Inclusive Campus Climate for All
UIC is proud to facilitate the Safe Zone ally program workshops. Safe Zone is a workshop designed to heighten awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) issues and concerns. Safe Zone is offered regularly and is designed to put a human face on human issues. Safe Zone 101 is primarily presented in lecture format, but activities and interactive discussion are also incorporated into the presentation.
ALL UIC students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend this University-sanctioned workshop. Release time is generally granted according to the Attendance at University Events policy. For more information, please contact University Human Resources.
Is your organization/unit interested in a Safe Zone workshop? E-mail the GSC at email@example.com or call Megan Carney at 312-413-9862. We can work with you to create a Safe Zone workshop that focuses on your unit's needs.
