Training & Professional Development

Opportunities for training and professional development for students, faculty, and staff are provided by campus partners throughout Texas A&M's campus community. 

Aggie Allies Training teaches the skills so students, faculty, and staff are prepared to  provide a safe haven, a listening ear, and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people or anyone dealing with sexual orientation issues.

Bystander Intervention Training will equip you with some tools to counteract discrimination and prepare you to take action when witnessing harassment and discriminatory behavior in person or online. For Texas A&M University employees, the course is available in TrainTraq.

Enhancing Diversity Seminar Series is designed to engage the campus community in dialogue around topics and issues related to diversity, campus climate, equity, and inclusion. In a virtual format, the Office for Diversity has invited Texas A&M students, faculty, and staff to present their research to the campus community. A list of past Enhancing Diversity Seminars is available here

Green Dot teaches Aggie faculty, staff and students to be aware of potential violence around them and provides the skills, strategies, and tactics to use the power of peer influence to intervene appropriately and safely in high-risk situations.

Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness provide instructor-led training, online training, and resources about diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Step In Stand Up is a great reminder that as active bystanders, we can Step In to prevent acts of violence and harassment, and we can Stand Up for survivors. We can protect ourselves and one another with steps like planning ahead, using the buddy system and asking for consent. Throughout our history, Aggies have stepped up to serve, achieving remarkable things. We can continue that tradition of service with safe practices, bystander intervention and survivor support – and we can do it, because we're Aggies.
