Safe Zone stickers are available to all faculty to display on their doors or in their offices. A safe zone sticker indicates that a professor is supportive of LGBTQ students. If someone is displaying a sticker but behaving in a manner inconsistent with its display, please report them to their supervisors.

Lone Star College-University Park recognizes the importance of a diverse student body. Employees who display this Safe Zone logo are certified members of University Park's LGBTQ+ Safe Zone Program. They are available to listen and support you in a safe and confidential manner. As Safe Zone Allies, they can help you connect with resources on campus to address problems you may face that interfere with your academic and social success on campus as it relates to issues surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity. Their goal is to help you be successful, and they are committed to maintaining a safe and equitable campus environment. Additionally, how you identify in terms of your gender, race, class, sexuality, religion, and dis/ability, among all aspects of your identity, is your choice whether to disclose (e.g. should it come up in classroom conversation about our experiences and perspectives) and should be self-identified, not presumed or imposed.
If you have resources you would like added, please contact: Aaron Alon, Professor of Music: Aaron.Alon@LoneStar.edu | 281.290.5009
