UMB Safe Space Online: LGBTQ+ Allyship and Micro-Credentialing Course

UMB students, staff, and faculty can enroll in a free online Safe Space course and earn a digital badge and micro-credential. Safe Space Online brings UMB’s traditional LGBTQ+ Safe Space program to the virtual world, allowing participants to build their LGBTQ+ allyship skills, engage with a cohort of online peers, and learn about LGBTQ+ identities, activism, support, and inclusive best practices, all from the comfort of their home or office, at any time or any day. This pilot program is free for all UMB students and employees. 


As an overview, this pilot program will require a 2-month commitment, starting in June and ending on August 1st. Enrolled participants will be required to dedicate 1-hour per week and will watch videos, engage in video-based discussion boards, and complete learning quizzes. Modules will be opened semi-weekly and require that participants stay on track with the cohort. Individuals who complete this free course will receive a digital certificate, online micro-credential, and digital badge to place on their LinkedIn profile.

Safe Space Live (In-Person)

UMB Safe Space Program

The Safe Space program at UMB continues to train UMB faculty, students, and staff in LGBTQ+ allyship, advocacy, and education. This 3-hour long workshop is offered by the Intercultural Center and challenges participants to reflect on the identities and lived experiences of gender and sexual minorities while challenging norms related to the gender binary and heteronormativity. Individuals who complete this training will receive a Safe Space sticker and a certificate to place in their office or place of work. This training is offered both at pre-designated times and is also available for requests by UMB staff, faculty, and students. Below is a list of upcoming training and a form to apply for a Safe Space training of your own.
