Safe Zone Ally
At Mid Michigan College we want to create an environment where all students, faculty, and staff can learn and thrive as their full selves in every area across our campuses. Mid’s Safe Zone Ally training aligns with our five core values:
Mid’s Safe Zone Ally Program responds to the needs of the our campus community. The goal of this program is to provide a welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer, intersex, asexual persons as well as those who do not identify with a specific label (LGBTQIA+) by establishing an identifiable network of individuals who can provide support, information and a safe zone for students and staff. We understand that those who identify as LGBTQIA+ may or may not have additional needs for support; therefore, Allies are equipped with a knowledge base to provide support and advocacy when needed.
Mid’s Safe Zone Ally Symbol The “Safe Zone Ally” symbol is a message to those who identify as LGBTQIA+ and their allies. The person displaying this symbol will be understanding, supportive and trustworthy if a person who identifies as LGBTQIA+ needs help, advice or just someone with whom they can talk.
