LGBTQ Community at New Paltz

New Paltz Allies Program

Registration for upcoming New Paltz LGBTQ+ Allies workshops, information, and updates can be found below.


What is the New Paltz LGBTQ+ Allies Program?

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 identity. 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 workshop which provides an opportunity for discussion, resource materials, and information regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. By attending the facilitated workshop 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.

Upcoming workshops will be listed on the Engage Platform. Throughout the year, we offer virtual and in-person workshops.
