CU Safe Zone [Two offerings: July 24 and July 25, 1pm-4pm, Studebaker Hall]
CU Safe Zone is a 3-hour training session that provides foundational knowledge needed to support and act in solidarity with LGBTQ+ communities at Columbia University. This campus wide program was designed to educate and visibly identify students, faculty, and staff who support the LGBTQ+ community, better understand LGBTQ+ communities and some of the issues these communities face, and are aware of the various LGBTQ resources available to folks on campus. Training locations will be announced closer to the sessions; they are likely to be in Studebaker Hall.
