Safe Zone Participant Information

Who can participate in the Safe Zone Program?
The Safe Zone program is open to all current Rowan University employees and students.

How do I get the Safe Zone sticker?
The Safe Zone symbols are given out at the end of each Safe Zone seminar. You must attend a seminar to be provided with the Safe Zone sticker.

How can I attend a seminar?
Safe Zone seminars are offered throughout the year. Watch Rowan Announcer emails for upcoming seminar dates and times. Seminars can also be requested for student organizations, student employees, and administrative and academic departments or offices. You can contact the Coordinator for the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Mr. J. T. Mills, to get further information or request a Safe Zone seminar at millsj@rowan.edu.

What happens at the Safe Zone Seminar?
The content of the employee and student Safe Zone seminars are different, but the type of information presented is the same. The seminar is simply a time to learn more about the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community through discussing experiences of LGBT students, LGBT identity development, general campus concerns of LBGT students, causes of campus concerns of LGBT students, and ways to support LGBT students and employees at Rowan University.

The student Safe Zone seminars are specifically designed to be interactive and allow students to not only be presented with information about the LGBT community, but also reflect on their own ideas, beliefs, and bias.

All seminars are a great way to get to connect with colleagues and peers and learn more about supporting the LGBT community at Rowan.
