Safer Zone Training Program

The Safer Zone Training Program, offered through Xavier’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion, aims to educate campus on advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community by promoting understanding, allyship, and inclusivity of the whole person. Safer Zone sessions must be taken in the following progression: Foundations, Society, Allyship. If you have previously taken a Safer Zone training at Xavier, please email Maria Merrill to confirm which session you should begin with.

Safer Zone: Allyship
The purpose of Safer Zone: Allyship is to create a network of supportive allies and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community across Xavier's campus.
