Safe Zone Program

Through education, advocacy, visibility and skill development, the Safe Zone Program emphasizes the importance of creating a non-judgmental and non-biased space for students to express concerns they are experiencing in their lives. The safe zone program is comprised of faculty and staff on campus. The committee for 2015-16 is Mitch Karstens, Jennifer Hancock and Bob Lang.
