Student Alliance for Equality (S.A.F.E.)

The Student Alliance for Equality (SAFE) is a registered student organization that provides support for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, queer, and questioning students, faculty, staff members, alumni, and our allies at the University of Central Oklahoma, as well as for members of the surrounding communities.

SAFE sponsors educational programs and advocates tolerance and equality for all people, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

SAFE promotes friendship and acceptance by sponsoring social events within a safe environment, and it serves as a liaison between the UCO campus and the wider community through its involvement in student government, campus committees, and off-campus activities and initiatives. SAFE also provides information on BGLTQIA issues through forums, public speakers, and support groups. In addition, SAFE sponsors the UCO Safe-Zone Ally Program, and it collaborates with community organizations on a variety of initiatives and programs.
