About Our Program:
The Pride @ Dickinson Safe Zone Program seeks to create a safer and more inclusive campus environment for all members of the campus community by reducing heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia. Through the training program and the display of Pride @ Dickinson stickers, the program creates a visible and supportive network of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, and ally members of the campus community who have a basic knowledge about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity and are able to provide support and referrals to members of the campus community.
