Student government demands that resident advisors be forced to undergo LGBT training
Ohio State University’s student government recently passed a resolution that demanded the university require its residential advisors to undergo LGBT-centric “Safe Zone” training “prior to interactions with students on their floors.”
The Lantern reported that the Undergraduate Student Government’s General Assembly passed a resolution recently that demanded the implementation of that training for all RAs.
The measure, titled “A Resolution to Require Resident Advisors to be Safe Zone Trained,” was passed unanimously by the student government. It notes that advisors are already required to undergo anti-bias “Open Doors” training, and that “11 percent of Ohio State’s student population identifies as LGBTQ+.”
The Safe Zone Project’s website describes the program as “a free online resource for powerful, effective LGBTQ awareness and ally training workshops.”
Campus spokesman Benjamin Johnson did not respond to multiple inquiries from The College Fix asking whether the school had any intention to force residential advisors to undergo the training and whether or not students with any objections to the pro-LGBT material would be given exemptions.
Undergraduate Student Government President Shamina Merchant, Vice President Shawn Semmler, and Director of Diversity & Inclusion Kayla Wilson also did not respond to multiple queries asking the same thing.
The “Safe Zone Training Facilitator’s Guide” on the program’s website spans sixty-six pages. The manual includes segments titled “Core Vocabulary & Do/Don’t Handout,” “Privilege for Sale & Coming Out,” and “Fearfully Asked Questions (FAQ),” among others.
