A number of college and universities have implemented educational interventions with names such as Safe Zone, Safe Space, Safe Harbor, and Safe On Campus.
Although it is unclear who first conceived of the "Safe" idea, the earliest found is the Ball State University program called SAFE On Campus (1992) or Staff, Administration, and Faculty for Equality On Campus which was implemented during the 1992-1993 academic year by the Lesbian, Bisexual, and Gay Student Association.
Since published information has been previously unavailable then these "Safe" programs have probably been based on little knowledge or experience. The hallmark of these "Safe" programs is the public identification of allies by placing a "Safe" symbol, usually incorporating a pink triangle or rainbow, on office doors or within living spaces.
