We at Sam Houston State University are committed to the inclusion of all students. SHSU’s Institutional Mission Statement emphasizes the importance of promoting and supporting diversity. The Counseling Center and Department of Residence Life are offering Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) training sessions - known as HAVEN. The training will provide LGBTQ information, available resources, and discussions on LGBTQ topics and how it relates to the college culture. In this one and a half hour session, we will collaboratively discuss LGBTQ equity, promote awareness and understanding of LGBTQ concerns, present information on how to be a helpful and effective ally, along with providing valuable resources for LGBTQ topics. We believe all students at SHSU should feel safe regarding their sexual orientation.
The training dates are as follows:
Haven Training for faculty/staff will be held on October 17, 2012 from 3:00pm - 4:30pm in LSC 302
Haven Training for students will be held on October 24, 2012 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm in LSC 302
Training is limited to 25 participants. Deadline to register is October 15, 2012.
