Welcome to the Fall 2018 semester at MC!


Safe Zone Training

Rockville campus, November 1th, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, Room TBD


Gain new understanding of gender, gender identity, gender expression and the diverse range of sexual and affectional orientations. Acquire resources and referral information and practice communication skills for classroom or office discussions or unexpected disclosure. It's your choice about how visible and active to be as an ally after class.

Foster a welcoming academic environment for students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender--or questioning identity. LGBTQ students often feel unsafe at school, resulting in reduced attendance to avoid risk, bullying, or bias. Empower students to cope with ignorance or discrimination, build community among peers, and focus on their studies.

Upon completion of this class, you will be able to:

- Describe the foundation and goals of a Safe Zone program
- Increase your awareness, knowledge and skills in order to be an affective ally for LGBTQ students
- Identify resources and referral options at MC and in the Mid-Atlantic LGBTQ community
- Strengthen your network and community of allies across the College


WHAT: We hope to create a welcoming, community-building space for dialogue about gender and sexuality in order to promote inclusivity and equity. Open to all students, faculty, and staff. 

WHEN: First Wednesday of every month, 3:00 - 4:00 pm 

Possible topics: LGBTQIA in pop culture, media, politics, military, etc; intersectional feminism; identity and labels; coming out; transitioning; mental health; available resources; etc.
