The Spectrum Center staff is qualified to present on a variety of topics using a diverse array of learning/teaching modalities. We work with each group who requests a workshop to ensure that educational goals are met. Using a social justice framework, coupled with current events and student development models, our educational workshops are designed to help your group gain a better understanding of the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and similarly-identified people.
Requests should be placed two weeks in advance to ensure that we can collaborate to meet your educational needs.
After you have requested your workshop, a member of the Spectrum Center staff will contact you to discuss your training.
In most cases, our training sessions are free of charge to the University of Michigan community; in the case of community organizations, you will be contacted by the Spectrum Center to discuss your training needs and any related costs.
Successful learning interactions require 60- to 90-minute sessions; if your organization's proposed session is shorter than this, we will cover the content that time allows.
It is the responsibility of the requesting organization to provide the space for training; if you are unable to secure space, please indicate below.
In most cases, workshops can only be offered to groups of 10 participants or more.
In the event of cancellation or rescheduling, a 36-hour notice is appreciated.
We have to sleep too! So please, no requests for workshops that go past 10pm.
If you have any questions about our workshop offerings, please contact Ariana Bostian-Kentes, Educational Outreach Coordinator, Spectrum Center, firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-763-4186.
