Safe Zone

Safe Zone Logo

The Safe Zone program provides support for the LGBTQ+ community at Villanova and provides educational opportunities for all community members. Safe Zone helps to create a welcoming and open environment for all and seeks to provide opportunities for increased awareness and visibility of LGBTQ related issues and needs.

Safe Zone trained community members display a Safe Zone logo on their door or back pack showing their support of the LGBTQ community. Faculty, staff, and students across the university are among our Safe Zone members.  In addition, Resident Assistants, members of VU Pride, and Health Promotion's POWER peer educators are known as allies and most typically are Safe Zone trained.
