LGBTQ Affairs has four signature programming areas:
Safe Zone is a campus-wide program committed to making The University of Arizona a safer, more welcoming, and inclusive environment for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) community. Participants who complete the training will receive a Safe Zone sign, indicating that they are an identifiable source of support and nurturance for members of the LGBTQ community.
The LGBTQA Support Group is a safe space for students, staff and faculty to talk in an open and supportive environment about issues impacting their lives and the LGBTQ and allied community. Topics range from coming out to making new friends, from the media to gender identity. Facilitated by LGBTQ staff to provide resources and guidance if needed, the group is free and confidential.
We offer Internship Opportunities every semester where both undergraduate and graduate students earn course credit to develop programs for LGBTQ and allied students, staff, faculty, and alumni. The application process occurs at the end of each semester.
