Safe Zone Project

The Safe Zone Project, through education, advocacy, visibility, and skill development, supports faculty and staff to become allies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students and colleagues. The Project is designed to radically reduce prejudice and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression at Murray State University by creating a safe and affirming campus. The Safe Zone symbol sends a message that the person or unit displaying it has decided to be an active and visible ally, can be trusted to maintain confidentiality, and will respond to the individual with understanding, support, and empathy.  A national program, the "safe zone" project works to spread awareness about the importance of diversity appreciation and tolerance for all people.  If you are interested in participating in the Safe Zone Project or if you have questions about the program, please contact Jody Cofer Randall at 809-5040 or Dr. Josh Adair at 809-4540.
