The perception of campus environment influences learning and developmental outcomes, and discriminatory environments have a negative effect on student learning. Research supports the pedagogical value of a diverse student body and faculty on enhancing learning. LGBTQ people have a more negative perception of campus climate than other populations. For example, one-third of LGBTQ students consider leaving due to a negative campus climate, 31% perceive a homophobic climate, and 11% experience harassment. Despite these compelling statistics, only seven percent of universities offer support services specifically geared to the needs of LGBTQ students. Safe Zone Ally Training is a two-part workshop for students, faculty, and the professional community during which participants will explore the unique needs and concerns of LGBTQ people in higher education. Participants will build knowledge and skills for creating a more inclusive and affirming environment, and will build skills to identify and interrupt discrimination. Participants learn how to become an ally on individual, departmental, and institutional levels and will develop strategies to build an identifiable network of supportive persons on their own campuses.
