How do we find out about campus-wide trainings?
Trainings are available upon request (for your specific group) by filling out our Training Request form. Additionally we will conduct 2 campus-wide trainings in 2012-13 to allow for individuals to attend. Details will be posted on this page and we will send out a campus-wide announcement as well.
Why not “Safe Space” Trainings?
“Safe Space” Trainings are an important part of our movement towards LGBTQ acceptance and equality. Their intention is to demonstrate that a person or a space is not tolerate LGBTQ harassment or violence. However, completing a training and having the best of intentions may not be enough to ensure “safety” for an individual student or group of students. Safety also looks and feels and means different things to different people. To imply that it exists prior to engagement or building a relationship is misleading. Safe Space is created in relation to those who are in the room and is impossible to guarantee. Instead, we encourage students, staff, and faculty to continue to receive trainings, read recommended readings on LGBTQ experiences, and include other signifiers (rainbow flags), integrate LGBTQ history, writers, artists in your curriculum, integrate LGBTQ-inclusive and non-gendered language in your teaching/ presenting, and constantly create the safest spaces you can for all.)
Can you help me put together a panel of LGBTQ students for my class?
We encourage faculty, staff, and students to think twice before asking students in their own classes or outside of their class to serve on panels with their peers. Students may be able to share about their individual experience and some may be trained to talk about the myriad of LGBTQ experiences and the root causes. However, it is not their responsibility to teach (unless they volunteer to share as a student). Instead, please consider contacting LGBTQ organizations and speakers bureaus who coordinate community members who enjoy teaching others. Resources include”
