EIU Safe Zone Project
Created to address the concerns of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and ally community at Eastern Illinois University and the surrounding area, the SafeZone Project is a way to reach out to these students and welcome them in all areas of the EIU community. Safe Zones are areas on and around campus where supportive people provide information and work toward the elimination of myths, misconceptions, and stereotypes.

By participating in the Safe Zone Program, one pledges that his/her Safe Zone is a place where lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and allies can:
- feel comfortable and safe in a confidential environment.
- express any issues and concerns in an atmosphere of acceptance and support.
- access informational and educational resources including: organizations, phone numbers, web sites, and books.
