Safe Zone Information and Reminders

Safe Zone – a group of faculty, staff and students who work together to make UMW an inclusive and welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ members of our community – announces new name-change processes for students that includes EagleOne cards and working in Canvas. Visit the “Student Name on University Documents” page for more information.

The semester’s first Safe Zone training is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 3:30pm. The session will cover basic training focused on terminology, issues related to privilege, increasing awareness and sensitivity, and how to support the LGBTQ+ population on campus. Sign up on a first-come-first-served basis by emailing me Professor of Psychological Science and Acting Safe Zone Director Mindy Erchull at merchull@umw.edu.
