LGBTQ on Campus for Faculty & Staff is a 30-minute online, interactive learning experience that assists institutions of higher education in creating a safe and supportive campus community by 1) increasing awareness and empathy for the challenges faced by LGBTQ students, and 2) building the skills of faculty and staff to model respectful behavior, including managing classroom discussions that may include bias comments or attitudes or handling an LGBTQ-related issue. Faculty and staff who complete the training will be more aware of the challenges experienced by LGBTQ students and know how to:
- Respond when someone makes a biased comment or expresses prejudice
- Respond supportively when a student comes out as LGBTQ
- Recognize warning signs of psychological distress, including suicidal ideation
- Connect students who may be in distress with campus support services
During the training, users assume the role of faculty and staff members and engage in interactive conversations with three fully-animated, emotionally-responsive virtual students. Through these conversations, users learn how to create an inclusive, supportive environment for their LGBTQ students.
