The "Safe Zone" symbol is a message to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer and their allies. The message is that the person displaying this symbol is understanding, supportive and trustworthy if a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person needs help, advice or just someone with whom s/he can talk. The person displaying this symbol can also give accurate information about sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
The mission of the Safe Zone Ally Program is to provide a network of safe and supportive allies to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community at Mayville State University.
The Safe Zone Ally Program responds to the needs of the Mayville State University community. The goal of this program is to provide a welcoming environment for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender by establishing an identifiable network of supportive persons who can provide support, information, and a safe place for LGBT persons within our campus community. Those who have committed to being Safe Zone Allies indicate that bigotry and discrimination, specifically regarding persons who are LGBT, are not tolerated.
Please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion for more information regarding resources for our LGBTQ+ community.
MSU has a number of faculty and staff who are certified Level 1 and 2 after receiving Safe Zone training.
