Spectrum Center

Spectrum Center is now offering online Allyhood Development workshops during the summer semester. These workshops can range between one to two hours; our standard six hour ADT workshop will not be offered while our Center is operating virtually. You can request a workshop through our Google form. 

The Spectrum Center's LGBTQ Allyhood Development Training Program, started in 2005, seeks to support an individual or organization’s process of development as it relates to LGBTQ inclusivity and advocacy. Allyhood Development Training (ADT) uses a social justice framework to illustrate the lived experiences of LGBTQ identified people to workshop participants.

Topics include social identities, LGBTQ terminology, active bystander intervention strategies, and practice utilizing the day's knowledge and skills in real-life scenarios.

Through active engagement in the training, participants will grow in their personal awareness, knowledge, skills, and actions as it relates to their engagement in doing ally work. The purpose of having the Allyhood Development Training is to promote a campus community in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity.
