So What is Safe Zone?

The Western Oregon University Safe Zone program seeks to form an ally network of students, faculty and staff committed and trained to provide safe, non-judgmental and supportive contacts for all WOU community members regarding Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Ally, and Asexual identities. We are committed to providing a campus atmosphere of universal acceptance and assistance.


Vision: To provide continuing education to the community about LGBTQQIAA inclusiveness on and off campus.
