Best practices suggest that Safe Zone participants "refresh" their training every three years. For Geneseo faculty and staff members therefore, we ask that you sign up to take the basic 3-hour workshop again if you were trained BEFORE July 1, 2019. Rest assured, the curriculum has been entirely revised by student leaders in the past two years and you will absolutely encounter new material and strategies.

Next Open Faculty/Staff Full 3-hr Training: Online Virtual Training TBA. In-person training opportunities continue to be evaluated per state and campus guidelines and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.  There may still be virtual training options in the Fall, and opportunities for these trainings are being evaluated. 

Next Open Faculty/Staff Refresher Training:   Currently on pause, keep looking back to this space for announcements in Fall 2021!

Once Safe Zone Refresher Training restarts, student trainers in our program have developed a shorter, 90-minute “refresher” workshop intended specifically for faculty and staff who last attended a Safe Zone workshop 2019 or before. If you have NEVER taken a Safe Zone workshop here at Geneseo, you need to sign up for the Full Safe Zone 3-hr Training.  

(Training Completed for Spring 2021)
