Safe Zone Ally Program Mission Statement
The mission of the Safe Zone Ally program at the University of South Florida is to identify, educate, and support allies. Allies are individuals within the USF community who consider themselves to be open and knowledgeable about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) issues and who choose to provide support, as well as advocate with those who are LGBTQ.
Safe Zone Allies
Safe Zone allies are USF students, faculty, and staff who successfully complete the Safe Zone training and choose to support and advocate with those who are LGBTQ.
Safe Zones at the University of South Florida are individual allies and their work and/or personal space. Those participating in the Safe Zone Ally program display a Safe Zone symbol demonstrating their support and advocacy with LGBTQ individuals and will disseminate information regarding the existence and location of campus Safe Zones.
A Safe Zone is represented by the displayed Safe Zone symbol.
