Safe Zone Registration Now Open

The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion invites staff and faculty to participate in Safe Zone Training on Thursday, November 5 from 3-5 p.m. in the Murphy Room (DJ Lombardo Student Center).

Safe Zone is a training aimed at establishing a foundational understanding about working with students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+) on campus.

Safe Zone’s program goals are: (1) to provide a supportive environment for LGBTQ+ students and allies on campus and (2) to increase the visible presence of LGBTQ+ allies and places that are safe for LGBTQ+ students across campus.

Safe Zone’s learning goals aim to help participants: (1) identify resources available to support LGBTQ+ students, (2) increase knowledge of LGBTQ+ terminology, (3) assess their own attitudes and beliefs related to LGBTQ+ bias, (4) reflect on the importance of staff and faculty allyship to LGBTQ+ students, (5) learn the impact of anti-LGBTQ+ bias on students’ academic, social, emotional, and spiritual success, and (5) explore strategies and develop beginning skills to respond to anti-LGBTQ+ bias and harassment in and outside the classroom.
