Diversity and Inclusion at Loyola

Safe Spaces

The Share the Dream Undocumented Student Ally Training is a 3-hour training designed to inform participants of key terminology as well as federal and state policies impacting undocumented immigrants. This includes reviewing the unique lived experiences of undocumented immigrants and their families within the United States.

The training is facilitated by staff from the Department of Student Diversity & Multicultural Affairs, and it is one component of an institution-wide effort championed by a committee comprised of Loyola administrators, students, and faculty.

Safe Space Workshops are introductory sessions that work to assist individuals who wish to support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA) community of Loyola University Chicago. 

Safe Space Workshops cover the following:

  • Definitions, terms, and symbols
  • LGBTQIA identity development
  • Skills to interrupt heterosexist and cissexist behaviors and attitudes
  • Resources for the LGBTQIA communities
