SAFE Zone Advanced Workshop with Office of Institutional Equity

Submitted by Brandon Haddock

The Kansas State University SAFE Zone program in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs invites you to the advanced workshop with the Office of Institutional Equity from 1-2 p.m. Thursday, April 20, via Zoom.

This faculty and staff workshop will assist those who wish to learn more about campus resources to become a better ally for our campus community.

The workshop includes a focus on faculty and staff rights and responsibilities, processes of the Office of Institutional Equity and advanced knowledge of campus resources and communities with the development of skills to assist students and colleagues.

Please follow the link to register for the April 21 Advanced Workshop.

SAFE Zone exists to provide open and affirming spaces throughout the K-State campus where individuals affected by discrimination, violence, hateful acts and other forms of marginalization can go for support and assistance. K-State faculty, staff, students and community members can become SAFE Zone allies as a way to publicly show their commitment to understanding human difference, practicing inclusion and promoting equity across campus and community.

SAFE Zone continues to be part of K-State's efforts to create an open and affirming campus and creates 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.
