Want to be an Ally?
Ally is a workshop that trains individuals who are interested in joining a campus network of allies to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans* and Queer community. Ally training includes experiential activities and guided discussions designed to provide knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help you be an effective LGBT*Q ally. It is free and open to all University of Dayton students, faculty, and staff. UD's Ally program is led by Drs. Jennica Karpinski and Shamell Brandon (psychologists at the UD Counseling Center), along with volunteers from the UD campus community. A light dinner will be provided, as well as a sticker that can be displayed in your room or office to demonstrate that you have been trained to be an ally.
