Training and Workshop Opportunities

LGBTQA+ Ally Training 

Our LGBTQA+ ally training is a modified version of Safe Place training. Folks should attend this ally training if they are interested in learning about LGBTQA+ issues but cannot commit to a 3-hour training or have previously attended Safe Place training but need a refresher. In this workshop, students, faculty, and staff will receive an introduction to terminology related to the LGBTQA+ community and receive tangible examples of how to support LGBTQA+ students on campus. 

Fall 2023 Dates TBD

(Un)documented Student Ally Training

With a rising undocumented student population on campuses around the country, it is important to recognize the needs of this group, as well as the institutional hurdles that exist. The training will help participants understand the unique challenges that these students face. It also focuses on campus and community resources that are available.

Join us for this interactive session in which we will highlight ways in which this population of students experience their higher education journey differently than others. Participants are required to have their camera turned on and to actively engage with each component of the training. 

Fall 2023 Dates TBD

Student Diversity Workshops

The Office of Multicultural Student Success offers the following four Diversity Workshops for students. The five Diversity Workshop are meant to build on each other and students are encouraged to start with Awareness of Self and move through the four workshops.

1. Awareness of Self: In this workshop, students will define terms related to diversity, explore their own identity, and engage in conversations about how their identity has impacted their experience.
2. Awareness of Actions: In this workshop, students will be given the opportunity to explore any stereotypes or biases they hold, engage in conversations about how stereotypes and biases can impact experiences, and how to effectively address microaggressions.
3. Awareness of Institutions: In this workshop, students will begin by identifying institutions that people receive messages from. After institutions are listed, students will define and discuss different isms and the communities they impact.
4. Awareness of Current Events: In this workshop, students will discuss current events and how the institutions and isms from the previous Diversity Workshop play a role in those events. Students will also brainstorm direct and indirect actions they can do on campus to address the current events.

5. Awareness To Action: Driving Change Capstone: This is the final workshop of our Diversity Workshops. This is an interactive discussion based workshop where attendees will have the opportunity to engage in though-provocking conversations regarding the concepts and topics. At the end of this work attendees will receve their Diversity Certificates as a recognition of their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.


If you are interested in completing all four of the Diversity Workshops, you will have the option to earn a Diversity Certificate that can be referenced for future opportunities (internships, grad school applications, future jobs)!
