The university prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation; however, intolerance, insensitivity, and harassment still exist at Kent State as they do in society at large. The Safe Space training aims to equip faculty, staff, and graduate assistants with the tools for creating Safe Spaces and welcoming environments for sexual and gender minority students on campus. Participants will have the opportunity to confront their privilege, learn about the LGBTQ community, interact with students who identify as sexual and gender minorities, and develop tools and plans for making a difference in their departments.The Safe Space program is a comprehensive, ongoing training through the KSU LGBTQ Center to make KSU a safer, more welcoming space for gender and sexual minority students. Training will consist of an LGBTQ Vocabulary 101, a panel with gender and sexual minority students, and an action planning workshop for making your office a Safe Space on campus.
Upcoming Safe SpaceTraining:
March 12 from 5-7 pm in 309 KSC
March 22 from 12-4 in the Vaughn Hoover Room
