The two hour workshop provides an opportunity for participants to explore their personal identities, privilege and what it means to be an ally at WVU. This program creates ongoing educational experiences between Safe Zone members and the WVU community that encourage students, faculty, and staff to explore cultural identity, values and stereotypes in order to better understand how these issues affect the greater community.
