There will also be two LGBTQ workshops this summer – the first training featuring basic information regarding LGBTQ issues and a second training that will go more in-depth for those who already have the basic knowledge but seek more information and a deeper knowledge about how to be an Ally.  

LGBTQ Issues 101

In this session faculty, staff and administrators are invited to learn about the growing student and faculty population who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ).  This session will highlight basic information regarding stereotypes, common myths and share resources that are available to support LGBTQ students and coworkers.  This training will enhance the participants understanding of LGBTQ issues, concerns, contributions, and resources.

LGBTQ Issues on a College Campus: Beyond the Basics

This session will be much more in-depth and will assist participants in working with students on a day to day basis, finding ways to infuse curriculum with LGBTQ supportive materials and how to create a non-homophobic campus environment.  This session will also highlight the Sexual Identity: Cass Model and explore the stages of identity development for LGBTQ individuals.  Also, in this session participants are encouraged to bring their questions and suggestions.  It will be a facilitated discussion where we can learn from the experience in the room in a safe, supported and confidential manner.
