Title

Article "Safe Zone membership growing"

Description

This article talks about the recent increase in membership in Safe Zone, a group committed to supporting students questioning their sexuality. It talks about how faculty are now displaying Safe Zone stickers on their doors to indicate that they are available to talk with students who may be questioning their sexuality. The program included one-on-one counsel in a partnership with Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), sponsored training for police on how to handle hate crimes, and campus-wide programming to increase awareness. Associate professor of philosophy Ladelie McWhorter said that "as long as society as a whole still discriminates against the rights of individuals based on their sexual orientations, programs like Safe Zone are absolutely essential to support those individuals."
