What is Safe Zone training?  Safe Zone training is a special project not only familiar on SUNY Oswego’s campus, but is a project used all over the country.  This project provides training opportunities at schools to raise awareness about the LGBTQIA community.  School environments can especially pose threats to LGBTQIA students and even staff members so projects like Safe Zone work to enhance and maintain safe spaces that will help support and respect these individuals.   

SUNY Oswego has multifariously dedicated many of its programs and projects to supporting diverse groups on campus for years now, as it is committed to being an utmost supportive and welcoming environment for not just the LGBTQ community, but for diverse identitiy groups in general.  Safe Zone is a great opportunity to unlearn prejudice, create a more inclusive environment for everyone, and is a way to build a better support system for the campus community.
