Counselor talking to a student

Safe Zone

Counseling Center

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 USC Aiken'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.
