Husky D.O.G. (Diversity of Gender) Training

Wednesday, May 11, 2016
10:00am – 12:00pm

Storrs Campus
Rainbow Center; Student Union 403

This training session will offer specific strategies, tools, and model practices for creating safer classrooms and workplaces for UConn’s diverse community of gender identities and expressions. The interactive training aims to engage participants to allow for a thoughtful and productive learning experience that will contribute to a positive campus climate for those who may identify as trans*, gender non-conforming, agender, and many others along the gender spectrum. The facilitators will share information, experiences, positive ways of communicating, policies, procedures, and resources.

All members of the UConn community are encouraged to attend: faculty, staff and students. If interested as an individual, please visit to enroll. In order to preserve a quality educational experience for attendees, pre-registration is required. Spring 2016 dates and times:
