Safe Zone is a voluntary network of faculty, staff and students who believe that every member of the university community should have an equal opportunity to grow and learn in a safe and open environment.

What can Safe Zone do for YOU?
  • Grant you a safe place where you can feel comfortable coming and being out, or sharing what's on your mind!

  • Educate yourself on LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) related issues

  • Provide you the tools to become an ally

  • Include you in our Safe Zone Family

  • Refer you to existing LGBT Resources in the area

  • Update you on related news and discussions.

When You See the Safe Zone Sticker:

You know you are in a LGTBQ+ friendly place.

Safe Zone educates JMU faculty, staff, and students about issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and questioning individuals (LGBTQIQ) and their loved ones.
