The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is proud of its culturally diverse population and supports cultural diversity in every way possible. Safe Zone is one way to say that all sexual orientations and gender representations are part of our culture and are acknowledged and supported. The Safe Zone Program provides a visible network of volunteers for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and other students seeking information and assistance regarding sexual orientation.
A collaborative effort between Student Life and Human Resource Management, the Safe Zone Program is based on the commitment of UAB to the value of cultural diversity and the needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered individuals.
Volunteers of the Safe Zone Program are committed to providing an environment in which every student and university employee is free to thrive on an academic, professional and personal level within a community that is based on respect and dignity. Volunteers of the Safe Zone Program have undergone training and are understanding and supportive of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals.
