Safe Zone Program

 

Welcome to the Safe Zone webpage!

The purpose of the Safe Zone program is to establish a University-wide network of easily visible allies who can provide support, information, and assistance to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students at CSU,Bakersfield.  

Allies are trustworthy, knowledgeable, and sensitive people who can provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment on campus for members of the LGBT community.  Allies are faculty, staff, and administrators who have attended the Safe Zone Ally Training and agreed to be visible allies of the LGBT community on campus.  Allies can be identified by their display of the following decal:
