Trainers at UAA


Who We Are

SafeZone Trainers have undergone an 8-hour training program to serve as resources, referrals and someone to listen  regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer (GLBTQ) concerns at University of Alaska Anchorage.

Below we will list SafeZone Trainers and their contact information as it becomes available. We will continue to offer more and more trainings to campus to make sure that UAA is an inclusive and safe place for all.
