Safe Zone Training

Inclusiveness & Intercultural Services (IIS) wants to ensure that TCU is a safe space for student who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Allies, Intersex, and Asexual (hereafter, “LGBTQ”). We work hard to further the institutions mission and values by advocating for education, resources, and awareness of LGBTQ issues on campus. IIS is committed to serving all students and specifically reaching out to students who identify as LGBTQ by providing the following resources:

Safe Zone Training

Safe Zone training is offered once a semester and is open to all TCU faculty, staff, and students. The goal of safe zone training is

  • To increase the overall campus community’s understanding and awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues
  • To provide a greater sense of safety for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender student community
  • To offer information to straight allies in positions where they may be in contact with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (as classmates, roommates, friends, residents, students, staff, faculty, etc.)
  • To act as a resource of information regarding homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia and LGBT issues on the TCU campus.
