The Washburn University Safe Zone Program is:
³ To increase the overall campus community’s understanding and awareness of current lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) issues
³ To provide a greater sense of safety for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender student community
³ To offer current information to straight allies in positions where they may be in contact with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (as classmates, roommates, friends, residents, students, staff, faculty, etc.)
³ To act as a resource of current information regarding homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia and LGBTQ issues on the WU campus and the surrounding Washburn community.
