Students, Alumni, & Faculty for Equality

About


In late 2011, several students, alumni, and faculty formed a Facebook group to discuss the need for LGBT equality at Samford University. This group eventually became S.A.F.E. Samford. We are united to better the relationship between Samford University and LGBT individuals.
