The Stevens Safe Zone Ally Program is a campus-wide initiative designed to educate Stevens community members on LGBTQ+ identity, current (in)justices impacting the LGBTQ community, and visibly identify Stevens staff, students, and faculty who seek to support the campus' LGBTQ population. 

Stevens Staff and Faculty: Before getting a Safe Zone placard to put on an office wall, you must attend this 2-hour workshop to provide a foundation of knowledge needed to be an effective LGBTQ+ ally.

Stevens Students: For those interested in attending a Safe Zone, this workshop will provide basic allyship skills to better understand and support LGBTQ+ peers. This educational workshop is 2 hours and participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker.
