Our Safe Zone program is open to all interested Bryant faculty, staff, and students. The objective of this program is to nurture an open, affirming, and safe University setting for LGBTQ individuals and their allies. This program covers a broad range of information, but focuses on the key concepts of biological sex, gender orientation. Finally, Safe Zone participants will learn key knowledge and skills that will help them in their development as advocates and allies on the Bryant campus.
