• Safe Zone Trainings: 2013-2014

    Safe Zone 1 Trainings

    Safe Zone 1 Trainings are four-hour long introductory workshops that help participants develop a deeper awareness of personal ideas, stereotypes, and assumptions related to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and related communities and helps increase participant's comfort level supporting LGBTQ individuals within the university community.  

    Participants have the option of joining the Hamline University Safe Zone Network and receiving a Safe Zone sign after completing the training. If you have any questions, please telephone us at 651-523-2423 or email us at hedgemancenter@hamline.edu.

Topics and activities will include: an introduction to bystander intervention, developing yourself on a path to competence, group and individual processing of scenarios.
