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 Jan 1, 2017. 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: Friday, January 17, 2020, 9am-12 noon in Milne 213.  RSVP Required.  Please click the following button for the appropriate form:


Next Open Faculty/Staff Refresher Training:   Closed for 2019.  2020 dates will be posted in early Spring Semester 2020.  

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 2017 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.
