Safe Zone

The Department of English and Philosophy is an official Murray State University Safe Zone. The Safe Zone Project is designed to radically reduce prejudice and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression at Murray State University. We provide a safe environment of active and visible allies who can be trusted to maintain confidentiality, and who will respond to the individual with understanding, support, and empathy.
