The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is proud of its culturally diverse student population and supports cultural diversity in every way possible. SafeZone is one way that UAB recognizes that all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions are part of our culture. The SafeZone Program provides a visible network of trained individuals that serve as a safe space for LGBTQ identified individuals.
The SafeZone program has selected student leaders to facilitate these sessions. Peer Educators of the SafeZone Program are committed to providing an environment in which every student and university employee is free to thrive on an academic, professional and personal level within a community that is based on respect and dignity. Individuals that have completed the SafeZone Training are understanding and supportive of LGBTQ identified individuals, and agree to provide a safe and inclusive space for all students.
