SAFE ZONE Program provides students with allies
by Kelly Duncan Staff Writer
NEWBERRY — The Newberry College SAFE ZONE Program is a program designed to promote acceptance and understanding of diversity on campus.
The program “is a safe haven for students” that helps them with issues they may have on campus or in their personal life, said Director of Diversity Education Dr. Peggy Winder. “They’re able to speak in private with a SAFE ZONE Ally.”
The SAFE ZONE Program is available to all students. Allies have “SAFE ZONE Ally” stickers or signs near their offices or work areas, and the sign means that area is safe and free of discrimination.
The college offers SAFE ZONE Ally training once each semester. Sessions are open to faculty, staff and students. The next session is scheduled for Feb. 9, with a registration deadline of Feb. 8 at noon.
For more details, see Winder in the Student Success Center in Wessels Library.
