(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.

Virtual training will take place on Tuesday, February 23rd from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. and Wednesday, April 14th from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.

Safe Place Training

A Safe Place is a confidential place free from homophobia, transphobia, bipohobia, and heterosexism where people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, queer, or questioning can feel welcome, safe, and included. During Safe Place Training, participants are introduced to LGBTQ-related terminology, provided information on common issues and challenges face by LGBTQ individuals, what it means to be an LGBTQ Ally, and International, National, State, Local and UT resources. Will return when everyone is back on campus!
