Adams State University is committed to creating a safe and open space for students, staff, alumni and community members who identify as LGBTQ+.

Safe Zone Training

Safe Zone training is a four hour training that delves further into how to be an ally, terminology, and different types of hate, negativity, and -phobias.

Individuals who complete a Safe Zone training will be able to mark their offices or work spaces with a Safe Zone sticker, showing students that these locations are safe spaces for them. Doing so can also provide a greater sense of safety and support among LGBTQ+ individuals on campus.

Contact Dr. Heidi Schneider at to learn more about becoming Safe Zone trained.
