Overview:
A recent report from Campus Pride entitled 2010: The State of Higher Education for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People sheds light on the safety situation for LGBTQ students on campus. Dr. Sue Rankin of Penn State completed this 30-year study and concluded that college campuses are not any safer for LGBTQ students today than they were 30 years ago. Only 7 percent of colleges have resources available for this population despite the fact that we know having a visible and identifiable LGBTQ community with administrative support is key to reducing bullying and violence against these students on campus.

It is vital that institutions of higher education create a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment for their LGBTQ student populations. This webinar will look at Dr. Rankinís research along with 10 strategies for reducing targeted violence on campus that offices can use to serve LGBTQ students effectively in their day-to-day practice. Participants will explore ally programs and the creation of safe space training. Are these programs effective and how can they be used to increase safety for LGBTQ students on campus? What are the programming and community-wide efforts that we know work? Participants will also learn about important regional and national resources including Safe Zone/Safe Space programs. The psychological damage for the students individually and collectively will also be explored.
