Safe Zone Program

The purpose of the Caltech Safe Zone Program ("Tech Zone") is to continue to foster an affirming and engaging campus climate by identifying and educating members of our campus community who are visibly supportive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning students, as well as all individuals regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Check out the CCD Calendar for dates and times of the next Safe Zone Training.
