    About Gothic Knight Ally Safe Zone Training: 

    Have you noticed the rainbow pride stickers in various buildings throughout campus? These stickers convey a message of support, respect and affirmation to NJCU students, staff and faculty who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and/or Queer (LGBTQ).  The Gothic Knight Ally Safe Zone Program is working diligently to ensure a welcoming and safe environment for members of this community as well as everyone who visits this campus. 

    In the true spirit of diversity and community, would you consider joining our efforts? If so, you have the opportunity to attend a comprehensive three-hour interactive training to:

    • Learn how to be an ally so others feel safe coming out
    • Provide accurate information about the LGBTQ community
    • Share support resources that are available on and off campus 

    After the training, you will be able to proudly display your Gothic Knight Ally Sticker and join the host of NJCU community members who have already pledged to diligently cultivate a community of respect and inclusiveness at NJCU and beyond. All members of NJCU – students, staff and faculty – are eligible to sign-up and help build a stronger ally campus community. 

    If you cannot attend any schedule trainings, and would like to attend a training on another date, please call (201)200-3189 or email: njcusafezone@njcu.edu.
