The purpose of the Safe Zone Program at UNC Charlotte is to create an affirming and supportive campus climate through identifying and educating members of our campus community who are opened to and supportive of all individuals regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. A large portion of Safe Zone Training focuses on trans identities and how to better serve trans students.
- A Safe Zone Ally at UNC Charlotte is an informed campus partner who has committed time and energy through organized training to learn more about individuals that may identify as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning or may be unsure of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
- The Safe Zone Symbol (pictured) is a visible symbol of support and an affirmation of commitment by that individual to fight homophobia and heterosexism at UNC Charlotte.
There are several opportunities on UNC Charlotte's campus for trans students to find support.
