Safe Zone training provides factual information related to topics of sexual and gender identity; identifies issues and policies that affect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals; introduces strategies for creating inclusive environments; provides guidance for making appropriate referrals; and raises awareness of the negative impact of homophobia and heterosexism on all people.
UIC is proud to have been among the first universities to adopt Safe Zone training. The Gender and Sexuality Center has offered Safe Zone trainings for over ten years, with more than 300 people participating last year alone. A national report from Campus Pride identifies UIC as one of the top 25 LGBT friendly campuses in the country because of our inclusive policies and practices.
All UIC students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend this University-sanctioned training. Release time is generally granted according to the Attendance at University Events policy. For more information, please contact University Human Resources.
