Safe Zone Program

The Safe Zone program exists to create and maintain a positive social, academic, and employment environment at the UH for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and intersex faculty, staff, and students.  Trained volunteers who serve the program are nonjudgmental, understanding, and trustworthy advocates for those seeking help and advice, or simply a place to talk story.  The Safe Zone program insures the enforcement of Hawai‘i State Law (Chapter 386) and established UH policy (Section 105 of the Board of Regents Bylaws and Policies) that explicitly prohibit harassment and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
