Safe Zone

When you see this symbol in someone’s office door or in his/her office, it means that the person is safe zone trained and is empathetic and informed about gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (GLBTQ) issues and is willing to provide support, information, and confidentiality.

Haywood Community College is a participant in the Safe Zone program and seeks to create a climate of safety for all members of the college community.
