One of the roles of an ally is to help to create an atmosphere of safety and support for LGBTQ students and staff. We highly encourage entire offices/departments to go through the training, so that their department/area is a designated “safe space. “The EOU SAFE Zone program is a network of allies composed of students, faculty and staff who are committed and trained to provide safe, non-judgmental, and supportive contacts for all EOU community members who identify as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or transgender.
