Create Your Own Safe Zone; Training for Undergrads November 6

UT’s new Safe Zone training for undergraduates is set for Sunday, November 6, at Humes Residence Hall, East Multipurpose Room.

Safe ZoneSafe Zone is a voluntary network of faculty, staff, and students who believe that every member of the community should have an equal opportunity to grow and learn in a safe and open environment. Safe Zone training is part of the Chancellor’s initiative on Civility and Community. Safe Zone training explores LGBT issues in an honest and open way and provides an opportunity for participants to become LGBT allies.

UT’s Safe Zone project is administered through the Dean of Students Office. UT’s Employee and Organizational Development provides the training through small group activities, information sharing and large-group discussions that explore commonly held myths and beliefs of the LGBT community.

After completing the course, participants can receive the Safe Zone sticker to post in their room or work area. This training is for undergraduates only, but additional sessions have been scheduled for faculty, staff, and graduate students. The training is free, but registration is required online at http://safezone.utk.edu/training.html
