The Allies Program seeks to empower administrators, faculty, staff and students to create and maintain a welcoming and inclusive environment for GLBTQ members of our campus and community. By providing support, resources, and educational programs, Allies help GLBTQ students find their place and remain a vital part of UTSA.
Allies are faculty, staff, and students at UTSA who provide a supportive and welcoming environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (GLBTQ) students. Members of the Allies Program at UTSA may post a placard or wear a lapel pin with the Allies logo to identify themselves.
Each Ally has attended a training session prior to becoming part of the Allies Program at UTSA so that they may become familiar with the benefits and responsibilities of being an Ally.
ALLIES at UTSA (will be updated as necessary.)
