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.

Mental Health Awareness

It’s time to speak up and talk more openly about mental health so all students can feel supported and encouraged to ask for help. Participants will learn what it means to be mentally healthy and to have a mental health condition. The training will take a look at some common stressors for college students and the warning signs of distress. Finally, the training will also focus on resources on campus and in the community and how to refer students of concerns. We are offering a training in February, please click on the title to sign up!
