Safe Zone Members

The role of a Safe Zone Member

The main role as a Safe Zone member is VISIBILITY. Safe Zone members are expected to post their Safe Zone sticker in a visible area. This should also be an area which is under your control. For example, if you share an office, you should not hang the sticker on your office door, but rather on your own desk or personal space, in order to not falsely include non-Safe Zone members who may not feel comfortable in that role.

Once they have identified themselves and their space as a Safe Zone, they are expected to provide support, resources, and referrals to individuals who choose to approach you. They are also expected to maintain the students' confidentiality and requests for privacy.

Should a Safe Zone member need further information, they are strongly advised to contact the Counseling Center and/or one of the area organizations.

Safe Zone is not meant to be a support group, or to be substituted for therapeutic sessions with a clinical psychologist. In situations where a Safe Zone member feels that the student may need to speak to a professional, they are encouraged to refer him/her to the Counseling Center. They are advised to NOT handle emotionally unstable students, or situations where they believe the student or someone else may be in danger, on your own. Their role is to let them know where they can turn for help if they need it.
