Safe Zone Facilitator Training, End of Spring 2017 Semester

Safe Zone Training is one of the primary ways we actively work to build a campus climate of safety, equity, inclusion, and respect for LGBTQ students and their many identities. You can get involved by attending a Safe Zone training— and attending 6 hours of training will get you a GMU Safe Zone Ally button/card. Then, if you want to take the next step, you can fill out our Safe Zone Facilitator Interest Form— the next training will be held at the end of the Spring 2017 semester.

All Gender Bathrooms at Mason

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) Campus Climate Task Force, established in Spring 2011 by University Life and supported by the Provost’s Office and Mason administration, spent 18 months reviewing the issues and concerns across the university for students who are part of the LGBTQ community. One of the projects this task force undertook was locating the all gender bathrooms at Mason. The LGBTQ Campus Climate Task Force created a list of these bathrooms in order to make these facilities more visible to faculty, staff and students. The list of all gender bathrooms can be found here.

 
We are proud that Mason was named one of the top 100 U.S. colleges and universities in The Advocate College Guide for LGBT Students and has received 4 out of 5 stars on the LGBT-friendly Campus Climate Index (a national assessment tool owned and operated by Campus Pride).

Additionally, we are a member of the National Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.

We are located in Student Union Building (SUB) I, Room 2200. That’s the main (2nd) floor, across Patriot’s Lounge from the Info Desk.

Services are available on site, as well as through phone and email communication.
