Workshops & Trainings
- Safe Zone Training
These trainings help to provide participants with the skills to create a safer space for GLBTQIA students within the university community. All are welcome to participate. Those completing the training receive a Safe Zone sign for their office to signify that they provide a safer space for GLBTQIA students.
- Peer Education
Want to know more about gender, sexual orientation, and GLBTQIA issues, but don't have time for Safe Zone Training? Request a Peer Education workshop! For student groups, residence halls, or classes with 12 students or more, the GLBTQ Resource Center offers tailor-made educational workshops on gender, sexual orientation, and GLBTQIA issues presented by trained GLBTQ Resource Center peer educators.
Staff and Volunteers Welcome Students to the Annual Welcome Back Picnic
Throughout the year, the GLBTQ Resource Center organizes awareness and celebratory events for the campus GLBTQIA community and its allies. These include hosting major speakers and film screenings. Signature annual events include the Welcome Back BBQ, National Coming Out Day, Celebrate Bisexuality Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance, as well as large events listed below:
- Lavender Graduation: Every year we co-sponsor this graduation ceremony with the GLBT Alumni Chapter, honoring graduating GLBTQIA students. In addition the campus GLBTQIA-focused scholarships and several awards are presented.
- The Transforming Gender Symposium: This free annual conference takes place to create a space where the campus and wider community can learn about transgender and intersex identities and issues. Visit the symposium page to learn more, view the conference schedule, propose a workshop, or register to attend.
