Safe Zone

Safe Zone

The SafeZone Project was created to address the concerns of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer community at Chicago State University and the surrounding community. It is a way to reach out to these students and welcome them in all areas of the CSU community. Safe Zones are areas on and around campus where faculty, staff and students provide support, information, and work toward the elimination of myths, misconceptions, and stereotypes.

  • feel comfortable and safe in a confidential environment.
  • express any issues and concerns in an atmosphere of acceptance and support.
  • access informational and educational resources including: organizations, phone numbers, web sites, and books.
