Training and Workshops

Learn more about how homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and heterosexism affects us all. Start your journey in helping make our campus a safer and freer environment for all members of the community, regardless of sexual or gender diversity.

Student Panels

We seek to increase understanding and awareness of LGBTQIA+ student experiences by providing student panels to University classrooms and student organization meetings. Panels consist of 2-4 students who define LGBTQIA+ terminology, give campus resources, share their personal narratives and answer questions.

Faculty, staff and student organizations may request a student panels.

Safe Space Trainings

The primary purpose of the Safe Space program is to reduce homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and heterosexism on our campuses to make them a safer and freer environment for all members of the community, regardless of sexual or gender diversity.

This is accomplished through self-reflective and group-based work that will allow us to challenge our individual biases in order to better serve as a resource and support for our LGBTQIA+ students, faculty and staff.

Safe Space training strives to provide a way for understanding and supportive persons within the UMKC community to prominently identify their commitment as an ally. These students, faculty and staff proudly display a Safe Space sign on their doors or in their workspace to signify their commitment as a resource and open ear to our LGBTQIA+ community.
