Safe Zone Advanced Workshop — Office of Student Life

Submitted by Brandon Haddock


Safe Zone at K-State continues to offer introductory, advanced workshops and educational series during the summer break. On Thursday, Aug. 13, we will offer an advanced workshop with our campus partner, the Office of Student Life.

The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Training to take the Safe Zone Advanced Workshop hosted by the Office of Student Life from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, via Zoom.

This workshop will cover procedures and best practices for assisting students in the classroom and online community, and the process of using the many student life programs and methods to help students be successful during their time at K-State and in their futures. These workshops are typically scheduled for two hours to give participants the opportunity for questions and discussion. The time frame is to ensure that everything is covered and everyone's questions are answered.

Register here for the Aug. 13 Safe Zone Advance Training with the Office of Student Life.

Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. Safe Zone was created to help those facing sexual orientation discrimination. Revitalization of the initiative in 2002 created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving Safe Zone effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Allies become educated to help those coming from a variety of backgrounds and identities with needs concerning exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns or sexual violence.
