Safe Space 101 training to return this spring

Safe Space 101 returns this spring!

The Oneonta Safe Space 101 Training builds awareness of the issues affecting LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, etc.) people and provides resources and skills on how to be an ally in the campus community. After completing the 101-style training, participants will be given the option to join the Safe Space Ally Network and display an official Oneonta Safe Space sticker (revamped for this new program) in a visible location. The symbol signifies the individual’s commitment to being a resource and an ally to LGBTQIA+ people.

There are monthly 3-hour training sessions available for students and employees beginning the end of January. Those interested will need to RSVP on Campus Connection. To find the dates and times, please log in to Campus Connection and search for Safe Space 101. Also, please make sure to select the correct session (i.e. students RSVP for the Students-Only sessions, Faculty/Staff RSVP for the Faculty/Staff-Only sessions). Participants will receive correspondence prior to their session with more information.

More dates will be added soon, so stay tuned!

If there are any questions or if your department/office would like to schedule a training session for your unit, please contact Emily Phelps, Assistant Director for Student Life & Leadership/GSRC at Emily.Phelps@oneonta.edu.
