Welcome to UNH Safe Zones!

We offer interactive Safe Zones programs and trainings for students, faculty, or staff focusing on a wide variety of topics related to the experiences of individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Aromantic, Pansexual, and more (LGBTQIAP+).

UNH Safe Zones Mission Statement:

UNH Safe Zones is an educational program to raise awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Aromantic, Pansexual, and other (LGBTQIAP+) issues and contribute to a campus climate of inclusion at UNH. This is achieved through the implementation of our many programs and trainings geared towards various intersecting topics. Our goal is to prepare members of the UNH community to support LGBTQIAP+ faculty, students, and staff and take active steps toward reducing and preventing harassment, discrimination, and violence based on sexual orientation, romantic orientation, and gender identity or expression. UNH Safe Zones is an intersectional organization and seeks to do the same in regards to race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, ability, weight, socio-economic status, age, and more.
