Trainings are 1.5 hours in length. We offer department-specific trainings, and some trainings that are open to mixed groups of faculty and staff from various departments.
Topic areas explored during trainings:
- Increasing awareness of the issues and experiences of LGBTQ individuals,
- Using inclusive language,
- Accessing and referring LGBTQ individuals to important campus resources,
- Discovering specific ways to provide support and be an ally in the work that you do with students,
- Exploring specific issues related to providing services to LGBTQ students and assessing ways to be inclusive of and welcoming to LGBTQ individuals in the general services that you provide,
- Developing skills to take active steps toward reducing and preventing harassment, discrimination, and violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression,
- As an office / department, how can you best "communicate" that you [your department] is supportive [an ally] to LGBTQ students?
Following the training, participants may decide to request a Safe Zones sticker.

Social Justice Educator Training (SJE) is a professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff and graduate students to further diversity awareness, knowledge and skill sets. We will explore “social justice” via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege, discrimination and prejudice, inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc. This process will include open and honest discussions, readings, and interactive/experiential activities in a respectful environment. The eight-hour training which is divided into two days is facilitated in a small-group setting. For More Information and Registration Form
