Spectrum Center


Interested in expanding your knowledge of LGBTQ+ identities and topics? Want to find ways to improve your allyhood? Our Education & Training team works with students, faculty, and community members who may or may not identify in LGBTQ+ community, to discuss best practices when creating and maintaining spaces open to LGBTQ+ identified individuals. Topics we offer include Basics of Gender & Attractionality and Allyhood Development Trainings, and we are happy to work with you to design a workshop, training or panel that best meets the needs of your classroom or organization!


In addition to trainings and workshops, the Spectrum Center also provides consultations to staff and faculty units/departments regarding LBGTQ+ competency and organizational allyhood. We work within a collaborative framework informed by best practices that centers student needs, capitalizes on the strengths of your unit/department and seeks to empower staff and faculty to advance the diversity, equity and inclusion efforts within your unit/department. Our offerings include short term and long term consultations, organizational needs assessment, goal-setting and training recommendations.
