The Truman 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 questioning (LGBTQ) people. Completing the training and displaying a Safe Zone sign indicates participants are committed to increasing their knowledge of LGBTQ issues. Safe Zone members are able to provide assistance as needed, including referrals to University Counseling Services. Summer Pennell, assistant professor of English education and longtime LGBTQ education activist, along with student interns, will lead this interactive training. Participants will learn current terminology and simple ways to create a welcoming campus environment.
