Safe Zone Project

Murray State Safe Zone Project logoThe Safe Zone Project supports faculty, staff, and students to become allies forLGBTQ+ students and colleagues.

Through education, advocacy, visibility, and skill development, the Project is designed to reduce prejudice and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression at Murray State University by creating a safe and affirming campus.

The Safe Zone symbol sends a message that the person or unit displaying it has decided to be an active and visible ally, can be trusted to maintain confidentiality, and will respond to the individual with understanding, support, and empathy. A national program, the "safe zone" project works to spread awareness about the importance of diversity appreciation and tolerance for all people.

If you are interested in participating in the Safe Zone Project, sign up here. If you have questions about the program or would like a training for your department or group, please contact Michelle Barber, interim LGBT coordinator, at 270-809-5040.
