SAFE ZONE TRAIN THE TRAINER PROGRAM - OPEN FOR APPLICATION
Students interested in becoming involved in the Safe Zone program at SUNY Geneseo as a trainer and/or intern must first take Geneseo’s Train-the-Trainer course (WGST 288). Enrollment in this course is only offered with permission from the instructor and takes place every Fall semester. The course combines elements of queer theory, open discussion, and a Geneseo-specific insider’s view of the Safe Zone program content. Course content offers an intimate understanding of the program and its contextual application at the college from an academic, awareness, and social justice standpoint. Class projects and discussions are generally focused and centered around ways to improve the program’s relevance and cultural competence.
Faculty, staff, and administrators at SUNY Geneseo who are interesting in becoming a Safe Zone trainer are welcome to contact the Safe Zone Program or Dr. Alice Rutkowski for more information.
