The Safe Zone for Students

The Safe Zone is sponsored by the UCLA School of Nursing's Council on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion.

The Safe Zone is a space where students can find a listening ear, encouragement and guidance in confidentiality.

While the Safe Zone is not intended to replace the academic advisement provided by a student's faculty and/or clinical advisor, or the program advisement and counseling available in the Student Affairs Office, it is a space where students can share personal issues affecting their academic success, without the fear of being judged or discriminated. Students can enter the Safe Zone with affirmation that they will be supported and valued.

The Safe Zone is designed to improve support to all UCLA School of Nursing Students. The UCLA School of Nursing believes in providing a community for students to feel safe, and foster an atmosphere of inclusivity, in accordance with the philosophical beliefs of the School of Nursing's Council on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
