The LGBTQ+ Allies Program is currently under revision. Please check back for information on upcoming training opportunities. The Allies Program will re-launch in January of 2017.
The New Paltz LGBTQ+ Allies are a network of faculty, staff, and students who offer support, communication, and dialogue on issues surrounding sexual orientation and gender identities. We aim to educate and foster greater respect and understanding for a diverse LGBTQ+ community. The New Paltz Allies work to promote a safe and inclusive campus.
The program offers a two-hour interactive training which provides an opportunity for discussion, resource materials, and information regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. By attending the facilitated training and agreeing to become an Ally, you will get a logo hang tag to put on your office or residence hall door. This will signify to the campus community that you are an Ally and are open and willing to serve as a resource for anyone seeking assistance with LGBTQ+ issues and concerns.
Is your department or organization interested in participating in an LGBTQ+ Allies training? Please contact Emma Morcone, LGBTQ Coordinator, for more information.
