Formed in 1988, the Alliance provides a necessary voice and body for WPI students of all sexual orientations and gender identities. They offer a social, educational, and support network while also hosting meetings and events surrounding Day of Silence, World AIDS Day, National Coming Out Day, and more.
The Safe Zone Committee at WPI consists of students, staff, and faculty who work to provide the campus community with education and training to promote the understanding of issues affecting LGBTQ+ individuals, fostering an atmosphere of growth and enrichment for all. Please email the Committee with any questions or comments.
Safe Zone “Safe Space” Program
The “Safe Space” program is a campus-wide network of trained individuals who can act as resources for members of the campus community with questions or concerns related to LGBTQ+ issues.
Members that have completed the training and committed to help provide a “Safe Space” can highlight their visibility to the WPI community by prominently displaying the Safe Zone logo. The Safe Zone logo sends a message to LGBTQ+ people and their allies that the person displaying said symbol will be understanding, supportive, and trustworthy if a member of the LGBTQ+ community needs help, advice, or someone to talk to.
