What is a Safe Zone?

A Safe Zone is a place where one can feel free to talk about being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, allied, asexual or intersex without fear of criticism or hatred. It is a place where one can feel not only supported, but affirmed and valued. Welcome to the College of Charleston Safe Zone!

The College of Charleston's Safe Zone committee meets regularly every semester in the Multicultural Student Programs and Services office.


If you have questions about attending a Safe Zone Meeting or submitting an agenda item please submit your correspondence and/or suggestions to Lynda Keller, SafeZone Committee Chair at

The College of Charleston Safe Zone program is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services.
