Allies are individuals who help create a safe place for our LGBTQ students, faculty and staff, and are some of the most effective and powerful voices of the LGBTQ movement. Not only do allies assist people in the coming-out process, but they also help others understand the importance of equality, fairness, acceptance and mutual respect.

More than 130 faculty and staff members, representing more than 50 departments, have completed ally training to become members of the Faculty and Staff Ally Network As of Jan 2014.pdf
