SAFE ZONE ALLY - The Safe Zone Allies are a network of CLU faculty and staff who are supportive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexed, queer, and questioning (LGBTIQQ) students and underrepresented cultural/racial and religious groups. Allies are individuals who are willing to provide a safe haven, a listening ear, and support for students from an underrepresented group.
