Safe Space Training promotes cultural competency. Training occurs throughout the academic year, or you may request a session for individual organizations and departments. 

Students, faculty and staff participants learn appropriate terminology, issues affecting LGBT+ communities and advocacy strategies to reduce systematic barriers to equality and inclusiveness. 

After completion, display your Safe Space Training certificate and/or sticker to show that you are an ally for LGBT+ students, colleagues and friends.
