Safe Zone Training Feb. 19


There will be a Safe Zone training from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Feb. 19 in the University Art Gallery.

The current exhibition, “Every Breath We Drew,” is composed of portraits of the LGBTQ community that explore identity and connection and is the creation of St. Louis-based artist Jess Dugan.
Truman’s Safe Zone program was created to have a network of knowledgeable faculty, staff and students in order to create safe and welcoming environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people. Completing the training and displaying a Safe Zone sign indicates participants are committed to increasing their knowledge of LGBTQ+ issues and challenging homophobic and heterosexist comments or behaviors in an educational and informative manner. Safe Zone members are able to provide assistance as needed, including referrals to University Counseling Services.
Anyone can become a Safe Zone ally. Participants will learn current terminology and simple ways to create a welcoming campus environment. Contact Brad Turnbull at or Summer Pennell at with any questions.
