Safe Space Training is important to our campus community to ensure that all LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff feel valued on our campus.
The Safe Space Training program at Trinity College is a 2 hour interactive training for our faculty, staff, and student leaders in order to become aware of the unique challenges our LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff are facing on our college campuses. Safe Space Training allows for visibility and inclusion on our campus
Goals of Safe Space Training:
- Promote an environment in which each member of the university community is welcomed and valued regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression.
- Promote understanding, acceptance, and appreciation of our LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff that is rooted in the principle that all people should be treated with dignity and respect.
- Promote an environment of inclusion within the Trinity community through a network of trained students, faculty, and staff across Trinity College that support out LGBTQ+ population, understand the unique challenges facing our LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff and challenge discrimination and acts of phobia related to the LGBTQ+ community i.e. homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, etc.
