Missouri State University has designed a Safe Zone program developed to educate, support, and create a safe campus community that accepts gender and sexual diversity. . The training will provide students, faculty and staff with the tools, resources, and information required to establish a safe and welcoming campus community for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ally population. After completion of the training, the individual will be given the opportunity to sign an Ally Commitment, thus making them "Safe Zone Trained" and ready to make a difference at Missouri State University.
