SAFE ZONE Orientation - Aug. 5, 2-3 p.m.: E179
SAFE ZONE is a program designed to increase the overall campus community’s understanding and awareness of issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) and other marginalized persons. After completing this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to become a member of the SAFE ZONE program at Richland Community College.
The purpose of the Student Senate is to represent the students of Richland Community College through effective communications by promoting unity and fellowship with all members of the College community. Specifically, we encourage the development of campus organizations and activities that will meet the needs and interests of the student. The Student Senate strives to represent and interpret student opinion as related to the information on campus policy and to distribute the academic fees to provide a variety of educational and social opportunities for students.
SAFE ZONE is a program designed to increase the overall campus community’s understanding and awareness of issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) and other marginalized persons. SAFE ZONE was created to provide a safer, more receptive, and accepting campus climate by preparing members of the Richland community to serve as a resource on LGBTQ issues while educating the campus community about the SAFE ZONE Program.
