Scottie Safe Zone Committee

Agnes Scott's Safe Zone program seeks to promote an emotionally, as well as physically, safe environment for LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual) students, faculty, and staff. Through education, community resources, and ally training, we will promote understanding and support to students, faculty, and staff.

We recognize the diversity of sexual identity, gender identity and expression among our community members; by recognizing this diversity we make a commitment to providing an inclusive and supportive environment for all members of our campus community.

Faculty and staff who have completed Safe Zone training, using the education and resources provided, may designate themselves as allies for LGBTQIA students and colleagues. Safe Zone-certified employees are committed to providing our LGBTQIA community with non-judgmental assistance, acceptance, and respect.

The Safe Zone Committee, a subcommittee of the President’s Committee on Community Diversity, comprises the following individuals:

  • Kristian Contreras, Director of Diversity Programs
  • Katie Curtin'19
  • Madelyn Kent'18
  • Avanti Lemons'18
  • Rafael Ocasio, Charles A. Dana Professor of Spanish
  • JLP Prince, Director of Community, Civic, and Global Engagement
  • Kijua Sanders-McMurtry, Associate Vice President and Dean for Community Diversity

The college's values, as well as non-discrimination and harassment policies, clearly articulate the college's expectations that all community members will be treated fairly.
Scottie Safe Zone is proud to collaborate with My Door Sign to honor all gender identities through inclusive all-gender restroom signage. Please visit http://www.mydoorsign.com/all-gender-restroom-signs for more information
