Kognito: LGBTQ on Campus Training

LGBTQ on Campus is a 30-45 minute, online, interactive training program designed to help students, faculty, and staff learn to create a safer and more supportive space for LGBTQ students on campus. This includes how to respond when someone makes a biased comment or expresses prejudiced ideology; how to be supportive when someone comes out as LGBTQ; how to recognize warning signs and connect students who may be in psychological distress with school support services.
