What is the Global Village?
Utica College is proud to offer students a globalized living experience within the Global Village. Tower Hall, a cluster-style residence hall, is home to the Global Village and is composed of students from across the globe that interact together to have a multi-cultural living experience. These students select to live within the Global Village because they want to connect with students from other backgrounds, cultures, and viewpoints. This community focuses on acceptance, appreciation, and awareness of international affairs.

- Reside within a cluster that is occupied by U.S students and International students.

The Gay Alliance
The SafeZone program was created to develop, enhance and maintain environments in workplaces, schools and other social settings that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) individuals, as well as straight, cisgender people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion.
What is a SafeZone?
A safe zone or a safe space is a place where all people feel welcome and safe. It may be a room, a car, or an entire college campus. The Gay Alliance SafeZone program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals and address the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ peers, family members, friends and co-workers. Creating safe zones or safe spaces is a proactive step that schools, agencies and corporations can take to create welcoming, inclusive spaces so that all people are empowered to reach their full potential.
