LGBTQIA Ally Training

We are very excited to be offering a newly revised portfolio of trainings for those who are interested in learning about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual identities as well as information about taking action to create more inclusive and equitable environments on our campus and beyond. 

We have incorporated participant and community feedback from previous year's "Safe Zone" programs as well as learning-outcome evaluation data to develop the following allyship trainings:

Foundations in LGBTQIA Allyship

Duration: 2.5 hours

This training covers foundational information about sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation in a socio-historical context. Participants have the opportunity to examine their knowledge and beliefs and begin the process of critiquing paradigms and systems that are harmful to LGBTQIA people.

*Although we personally cannot do allyship trainings for non-local organizations or for profit organizations we can refer to an outside provider who can provide an allyship training. For this please email

Ally as a Verb: Deepening LGBTQIA Allyship (Beginning in Spring 2018)
