Full course description
This course is for all FIU part-time and full-time faculty and staff, including student staff. Participants will earn professional development credit for taking the initiative to learn about LGBTQIA+ identities, genders and sexualities, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege. LGBTQIA+ folx sometimes question whether they will feel safe, welcomed, or supported in new environments. Those who are trained in the Safe Zone curriculum receive Safe Zone stickers and signature icons which, when displayed, communicate to others a commitment to making and creating inclusive environments for LGBTQIA+ peoples. Participants will also be listed on the lgbt.fiu.edu website, indicating their completion of the training and their commitment as advocates.
