Are you an ally looking to better support students and our campus community?

The resources below may help you to support peers, or to find support for yourself.

Ally Training

The GSC offers Safe Zone and Advanced Safe Zone training to students, faculty, and staff. Safe Zone discusses the basics on how to be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community. Advanced Safe Zone continues the conversation to discuss intersectionality within the LGBTQ+ Community.

Safe Zone

Safe Zone is ally training for the LGBTQ+ Community. We will define a common language as well as discuss ways to combat homophobia and how to be an ally to this community. After this training, you will get a certificate for you to display for people to recognize you as a safe person and an ally to the LGBTQ+ community.

Advanced Safe Zone

Advanced Safe Zone is ally training for those who completed Safe Zone. This training discusses different intersections within the LGBTQ+ community, such as race, spirituality, and ability. We will discuss how these intersections impact and create additional challenges to members of the LGBTQ+ community as well as how to be a better ally to this community.
