Being an Ally
Allyship is recognizing that we all have different identities, backgrounds and lived experiences. It is also recognizing that these differences may impact how we experience the university and society more broadly. It is important to be mindful of how our own experiences and biases may impact others. At UTSA, we are committed to creating an equitable and inclusive community and being an Ally is one commitment toward this goal.
This training serves as an introduction to participants on what it means to be an ally and why it is important. It is a broad look at allyship practices for historically excluded groups and shares resources for participants to learn and strengthen the skills needed to be an ally.
The Ally Program seeks to empower administrators, faculty, staff and students to create and maintain a welcoming and inclusive environment for LGBTQIA+ members of our campus and community. By providing support, resources, and educational programs, Allies help LGBTQIA+ students find their place and remain a vital part of UTSA.
