Spring 2024 Student Open Training Session



Request a Student Safe Zone Training



Academic and Professional Faculty, and Staff

Best practices suggest that Safe Zone participants "refresh" their training every three years. For Geneseo academic and professional faculty, administrators, and staff members, we ask that you sign up to take the basic 3-hour workshop again if you were trained BEFORE July 1, 2020. Rest assured, the curriculum has been entirely revised by student leaders over these past two years and you will absolutely encounter new material and strategies.

Next Open Academic and Professional Faculty/Staff Full 3-hr Training: 

Thursday, August 24, 2023,  12-3 pm in Bailey 101.  Please register using the button below, advanced registration is required.

Full! Closed to new applicants - Academic and Professional Faculty and Staff training - Thursday, August 24, 2023 from 12-3 pm in Bailey 101

Next Open Academic and Professional Faculty/Staff Refresher Training:   Keep looking back to this space for announcements in Spring 2023!

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.
