The university has several designated LGBTQ “safe spaces,” and additional safe zones are being designated. The existence of “safe spaces” does not imply that other places on campus are unsafe. Far from it. Rutgers-Newark works hard to make our community a safe and welcoming place for everyone. Safe spaces simply indicate locations on campus where numerous people have received extra training in how to work with and address the special needs of LGBTIQ people.

If you work with a  department interested in become trained on LGBTQ issues or would like to participate in our RU-Newark Safe Zone training program during the Fall 2012-Spring 2013 semester, contact the Director of the LGBTQ & Diversity Resource Center, Maren Greathouse, for more information at
