Welcome to the Safe Zone at Sonoma State University!

The SSU Safe Zone Program Mission is:

To support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Questioning and Intersex community at SSU by identifying, educating and supporting faculty, staff and students who will be allies of students, staff and faculty who identify as LGBTQI.

The SSU Safe Zone will fulfill its mission through the following activities:

  1. Create and provide Ally Training and create and provide a symbol that allies will display to provide tangible evidence of training and support of LGBTQI individuals and their allies within the campus and local communities.
  2. Foster a campus climate where, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, anyone may feel safe, supported, respected and affirmed. 
  3. Work to support the SSU policy of non-discrimination based on sexual orientation.
