Get Educated!


The mission of Cal State Fullerton’s Safe Space Training program, hosted by the LGBT Queer Resource Center, is to educate students, staff, and faculty about sexual orientation and gender identity.  The Safe Space Training program provides participants with the opportunity to learn more about social identities, current issues, LGBTQ affirming practices, and skills to take action to create more equitable and inclusive spaces on our campus and in their everyday.    After attending both sessions, participants are eligible to receive a Safe Space sticker and commit to being on the Safe Space roster.


Part 1: Foundations

Develop an understanding of foundational terminology and concepts, become aware of issues that currently impact the LGBTQ community, learn about resources for the LGBTQ community, and reflect on ways to increase LGBTQ inclusive practices in your campus role and daily life.

Part 2: Support Skills

Apply the knowledge you learned in Part 1!  Develop skills you can utilize to support students who are exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity, looking for community, and are in crisis.  We will review the resources you learned in part one and engage in case scenarios to best prepare you to support students and make appropriate referrals.
