The program objectives are
- to train a network of empathetic allies
- to make this network visible and accessible by
posting stickers on doors and pins on backpacks and other appropriate locations
to end discrimination and bias against LGBTQIA
campus community members
- to assist LGBTQIA students in their social,
personal, and academic development.
Trained allies are
- display their ally stickers and pins in
- provide information, referrals and support to
LGBTQIA members of the campus community
- refrain from promoting any religious or
theoretical perspectives that consider LGBTQIA life and people anything other
than a natural part of the continuum of human sexuality.
