At EVMS, we are happy to help build a community of inclusion with our Safe Zone Program. Safe Zone promotes the support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer (LGBTQ) students, staff, faculty and residents through education and training to establish identifiable allies who are supportive, trustworthy, and sensitive to the needs of LGBTQ individuals. This program aims to make our campus a safer and more accepting environment for all members of a community, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.
