Spectrum Center

With the Spectrum Center operating virtually, we wanted to provide consistent updates regarding our programming and offerings within the Center. Below are the updates regarding the Education & Training offerings for the remainder of the Winter term and moving into Spring/Summer, 


Workshops - March & April workshops are in the works to be rescheduled in the spring and/or summer semester, updates soon to follow. Workshop requests will resume after spring semester. The Allyhood Development Training for Winter of 2020 has been postponed and will be rescheduled as soon as safely possible.



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.
