Safe Zone announces spring introductory training schedule

Submitted by Kodee Walls

Safe Zone will offer an introductory training session on the following dates for spring semester:

  • 9:30-11:15 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, location TBD. 
  • 1-2:45 p.m. Thursday, March 14, location TBD.
  • 2:30-4:15 p.m.  Monday, April 8, location TBD. 

Register for the training sessions at orgsync.com/117373/events?view=upcoming.

These are introductory trainings for people interested in becoming Safe Zone allies. Through the presentation, you will learn the history of Safe Zone at K-State, discuss characteristics of allies to people from diverse backgrounds and identities, and learn about resources on campus to which you may refer folks.

Each introductory training will include partner presenters representing offices such as the CARE Office, Counseling Services, K-State Police Department, International Students and Scholars Services, LGBT Resources Center, the Office of Institutional Equity, Office of Student Life and the Student Access Center.

The purpose of the Kansas State University Safe Zone program is to create allies for oppressed, marginalized, and silenced groups. Allies are remarkably effective at promoting positive change in the dominant culture. Kansas State University faculty, staff, students and community members can become Safe Zone allies as a way to publicly show their commitment to equality across campus.
