Welcome to the Safe Zone

Welcome to The Citadel’s Safe Zone. The Safe Zone (SZ) program centers on workshops that provide information about, resources for, and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) members of The Citadel Community. The purpose of the program is to educate administrators, faculty, staff, and students about important aspects of the LGBT experience including vulnerability to bullying, rejection by loved ones, discrimination, and high risk of suicide/self-harm. Safe Zone workshops are tailored specifically to the needs of members of the LGBT community at The Citadel, taking into account The Citadel’s unique culture. The Safe Zone is part of a broader effort to offer educational programs that help individuals develop skills to work with diverse populations to support a welcoming environment for all people on our campus.
