Space Safe Training

Posted on Monday, February 1st, 2016 by Kallie Eberling

Concordia will be holding safe space training next Monday at 7 pm in the Birkeland Alumni Lounge.

The purpose of the safe space initiative at Concordia is to promote a more open environment throughout our community regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Trained members of the safe space initiative pledge to be confidential, nonjudgmental and supportive contacts for all individuals of the Concordia College community to talk to.

All faculty and staff within various departments on campus are all certified in Safe Space. The health center, office of ministry, residence life, enrollment, the counseling center, and the security/ public safety department all make being open and welcoming to students part of their mission. Also, there are professors all over campus that are certified in space safe.

 

Safe space certified faculty offices are signified with a rainbow triangle sticker outside of their door. After completing training student, faculty and anyone who participates will be given

It is free to register and the deadline is next Monday (the 8th) at noon, students or faculty are welcome to come and get Safe Space certified! If any questions about the process arrive Amanda Pieters is available for contact.

Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be continuing my education this year at Concordia! I have finally decided, after changing my mind multiple times, on an English Education major. I hope to obtain a minor in Political Science, and I am thinking about law school upon graduation.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county!

At Concordia, I am involved in the forensics team and various clubs. I participate in policy debate in forensics, and really enjoy it!

I’m happy to share my experience here at Concordia, and I hope you can find some useful tips from my blog!
