About Safe on Campus

Learn to be a better advocate and ally to lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender people. Participants receive information on practical strategies for addressing homophobia, learn ways to support students who are coming out, and gain an understanding of respectful language use. Participants may choose to become members of the Safe On Campus program by signing a pledge of support for LBGT people.

SOC members are given a door sign to display in their campus living or work place. This indicates the space is safe for LBGT persons to seek support. SOC facilitators may be invited to residence halls, student organizations, and classrooms. Membership is always optional.
