Ally Training Program

The UA Safe Zone Ally Training Program provides a visible network of allies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) individuals. Safe Zone Allies distribute information regarding sexuality, gender identity, campus and community resources, and methods for reporting harassment and/or discrimination.

The Safe Zone Ally Training Program is a three-hour training session that allows participants to:

  • develop a working knowledge of appropriate and respectful LGBTQIA+ terminology;
  • recognize the impact that a negative campus climate has on individuals who identify as LGBTQIA+; and
  • identify areas of personal growth as a member of the UA community.

Following the training program, participants are invited to sign-up to serve as UA Safe Zone Allies.
