Trainings are available for clubs and organizations, classes, athletic teams, and other student groups interested in trainings.

LGBTQ 101 is a two-hour long interactive presentation, designed to provide participants with a basic understanding and greater awareness of issues faced by students who identify as LGBTQ within today’s culture. This presentation includes an overview of the Catholic Church’s teachings on sexual orientation, definitions related to sexual orientation and gender identity, introduction to the concepts of homophobia and heterosexism, as well as common myths and misunderstandings about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender identities.
Active Ally Training
Join the conversation about how heterosexual allies can help make the Notre Dame community a safer, more welcoming, and inclusive environment for individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ). Active Ally Training is designed to provide individuals who already have a basic understanding of issues and concerns that face the LGBTQ community with information that will help them become allies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning undergraduate students here at Notre Dame.
