Supporting First-Generation College Students 

During this interactive session, participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own personal narratives while also gaining a greater understanding of the issues that face First-Generation College Students both here at Stonehill and beyond.  Participants will learn about the struggles that first-gens face while navigating the higher-education system.  The session will close with a discussion on how to create an inclusive yet diverse campus. 

Safe Zone Workshop  

This Safe Zone Workshop is designed to educate those who want to serve as allies to individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT). Community members participate in Safe Zone workshops to better understand information, terms, and experiences of those who identify has LGBT. At the conclusion of the workshop, individuals may choose to post a "Stonehill Safe Space" card on their door. This card symbolizes that the person has engaged in conversations to serve as a resource for LGBT community members. We reserve the "Stonehill Safe Space" cards particularly for those who attended a training at Stonehill because we have conversations unique to our Catholic identity and mission.
