Training Services Offered

  • Students: The Safe Space team offers training on Foundational Concepts to student organizations, courses and teams. During this training, participants will learn foundational terminology, develop an understanding of the differences between sex and gender, participate in an identity-building activity and explore ways to be allies in their daily lives.
  • Faculty, Staff, and Professional Students (such as graduate students, medical students, pre-service educators, etc.): The Safe Space team offers Advanced Concepts training. Participants receive a refresher of the Foundational Concepts training while reserving significant time for practical application in the field relevant for the audience. In this training, you can expect a combination of general information as well as highly tailored considerations for your unique discipline.
  • Programs, Policies, and Protocols: The Safe Space team offers individualized consultation services. In these sessions, you will meet one-on-one (or with your team!) with a Safe Space consultant to brainstorm solutions to any needs that you, your team or your office may have.
