Alfred SafeZone Program
What is SafeZone?
"The SafeZone program was created to develop, enhance, and maintain environments in workplaces, schools, and other social settings that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) individuals, as well as straight, cisgender people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion."
Individuals who have successfully completed a SafeZone training will be issued a sticker to be placed in their space to designate it as a SafeZone under their care. The sticker distributed from Alfred University training's is displayed at the top of this page.
Are there trainers for SafeZone available at Alfred University?

- Patricia Debertolis, Associate Dean of Students

When is training available?
SafeZone training's for Alfred University faculty, staff, and students will be made available throughout the academic year. Note that spaces available for any one training are limited to 25 participants.
