Safe Zone 101: LGBTQ Basics

The focus of this training is to provide participants with the fundamentals of awareness, language, and basic tips on how to be an ally of the LGBTQ community. Participants will define common LGBTQ+ terminology, and learn the importance of using inclusive language. In addition, participants will learn ways they can integrate strategies for becoming an active ally of the LGBTQ+ community within their role at the University.

CSDI regularly offers Safe Zone 101 throughout the year. We are also happy to work with groups of 20 or more to schedule specially tailored safe zones. To request a training for your department or organization, please email the Associate Director of LGBTQ+ Initiatives, Dr. April Callis, at
