Safe Zone Training
Safe Zone is a campus-wide program designed to educate students, faculty, staff, and community members on LGBTQ identities and experiences. The goal is to create a community that is inclusive for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. Safe Zone aims to prepare individuals to foster an affirming environment in which all people are free to thrive personally, academically, and professionally. Safe Zone has been designed as a multipart training, with each part building upon the concepts introduced in the previous section. Safe Zone 101 is a three-hour training that introduces individuals to basic language and concepts, and also starts the conversation on what allyship looks like. Safe Zone 201 is a two-hour training that focuses specifically on trans and nonbinary identities, as well as how to best affirm trans and enby individuals. The CSDI offers two of these trainings each semester. There are also a series of hour-long trainings focused on specific identities and histories within the broader LGBTQIA+ community. The CSDI offers several electives each semester. This workshop can be tailored for individual departments or student organizations.
