Student Diversity

Spring 2022 Available Trainings/Presentations

The Office of Intercultural Student Affairs leads intentional training sessions on various DEI topics. Below are a list of the current trainings we have to offer this semester. 

The mission of the Safe Zone Project at the University of Southern Maine is to visibly identify and support those members of the University community who are safe and supportive contacts for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and queer students, staff, and faculty. 

 Safe Zone Project volunteers participate in a 1.5-hour orientation program that introduces them to the various aspects of the lives and experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals and the community. The program focuses on the issues that LGBTQ+ people face and how we (LGBTQ+ and heterosexual and/or cisgender) can be successful, safe, and supportive allies.  Once a volunteer has gone through the orientation program, they can display the Safe Zone symbol on their office door, desk space, or person.
