The four-hour Safe Zone LGBTQ+ ally training will be offered through Human Resource Development, or HRD, via Zoom on Thursday, June 10, from 12:45 p.m.-4:45 p.m.

Every member of the Auburn Family deserves the opportunity to be academically and socially successful, including our LGBTQ+ students. Students and faculty are invited to participate in an interactive, professional development training designed to address issues related to working with LGBTQ+ students. Safe Zone training can empower and equip participants to become informed allies who are willing to provide a safe environment for all Auburn students. Safe Zone addresses sexual orientation and gender identity topics, including terminology and ways to manage situations that may be encountered.

Students and faculty can register for the June 10 training through Fast-Train. If particiapants cannot make that day/time but are interested in coordinating a Safe Zone training for an office, group, organization, etc., email Brandy L. Smith directly at to coordinate.
