The Safe Zone Network at O’Brian Hall

Posted on: | by Christine Anne George |

Safe Zone

Last Friday, a number of faculty and staff in O’Brian Hall—including a few law librarians—attended a UB Safe Zone Network training.  The UB Safe Zone Network consists of staff, faculty and students dedicated to making UB an inclusive campus for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Ally students. Individuals who have completed the 2 hour training have a Safe Zone card (pictured above) outside of their offices.

UB’s Safe Zone Network was created to enhance an environment at UB that is culturally competent and supportive to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals, as well as straight-identified people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion. With this as our mission, students, faculty and staff members of the Safe Zone Network strive to ensure that LGBTQ community members feel welcome, affirmed, and safe while studying, working and living at UB.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the Safe Zone Network, contact Wellness Education Services. Due to the interest in the training, there may be another session in O’Brian in the near future.
