The Allies Team provides exemplary service to the community and the university in fostering awareness, understanding, and respect for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) community. Through biannual meetings, mentoring programs, and training sessions the Allies provide educational opportunities that help to bring awareness about the LBGTQ and Allies program. This team collaborates with other offices and departments on campus to broaden its audience and understanding of the program. The actions of the Allies team has helped to development of a safe, diverse, and affirming environment for students of all sexual and gender identities thus contributing to increased retention rates.

Congratulations to the Allies Team on its accomplishments and a job well done!
