Ally Training
The Rice Ally Program is a student, faculty, and staff educational program. The Ally Program goals are to raise awareness about the ways homophobia and heterosexism impact everyone, and to teach skills in being an Ally to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community. 

The Wellbeing and Counseling Center and the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention and Title IX Support also offers more workshops for faculty and staff:

Mental Health Awareness
In this training, we will look at what it means to be mentally healthy and to have a mental health condition. We will also look at some common stressors for college students and the warning signs of distress. Finally, we will talk about what you can do if you need help or if someone in your community needs help.
 
Mental Health & Crisis Response Training

Learn to identify concerning behaviors early on and how to help students or visitors seek assistance. Also learn the overview of Rice responses and discussion about how Rice staff assist students or visitors during a critical event.

If you would like to schedule any of these trainings for your group, please call our office at 713-348-3311.
