USCA Safe Zone

USCA Safe Zone Logo

USCA Safe Zone members are committed to providing an environment in which every student is free to thrive on an academic, professional and personal level within a community that is based on respect and dignity. We are proud of USCA's culturally diverse population and support cultural diversity in every way possible.

The Safe Zone Program sends a message that sexual orientations and gender presentations are part of our culture and are acknowledged and supported. The Safe Zone Program provides a visible network of volunteers for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and other individuals seeking information and assistance regarding sexual orientation, gender identity, harassment, and/or discrimination.
