Professional Development Opportunities

Online Safe Space Basic Training

This self-paced individual course will prepare you with the basic information required to create a safe, welcoming and inclusive space for LGBTQ+ students and staff.

The course is presented on the Canvas platform and includes four modules designed to address the following four learning outcomes.

  1. Explain the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity.
  2. Define terminology used to describe sexual orientation and gender identity.
  3. Identify ways to create an inclusive classroom and campus space for LGBTQ students.
  4. Identify key moments in the LGBTQ civil rights movement. 

Most people can complete this training in three to four hours, but you can spend as much time exploring the optional resources provides as you wish. At the end of the course, you will take a quiz that will make you eligible for a Safe Space Training Certificate.

Participants who pass the final course quiz will receive a certificate via email that can be printed in hard copy. This course will start at three different times each year and must be completed by the end of the same term.
