Started in the Fall of 2013, the New Paltz LGBTQ Allies Program is designed to bring together under one common cause, straight and LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff to promote the safety, well-being, and inclusion of all members of our community. 

The program offers a two- hour; interactive training provides an opportunity for discussion, resource materials and information regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. By attending the facilitated training and then, agreeing to become an Ally, you will get a logo hang tag to put on your office or dorm door.  This will signify to the campus community that you are an Ally and are open and willing to be there for anyone seeking assistance with LGBTQ issues and concerns.
