Safe Place Sticker


Safe Places

You may have noticed a Safe Place sticker on various offices around the UT campuses. A Safe Place is a confidential place free from homophobia, transphobia, bipohobia, and heterosexism where people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, queer, or questioning can feel welcome, safe, and included. These offices have  completed Safe Place training and have signed a pledge to act as allies for the LGBTQA+ community.

For more information please contact the Office of Multicultural Student Success at 

The following faculty, staff, and graduate assistants have signed the Safe Place pledge to act as allies for the LGBTQA+ community:
