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!
 

Consultations

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.
