Programs

UMass Lowell Ally Space

The Office of Student Activities and Leadership, The Office of Multicultural Affairs, and The Office of Residence Life work collaboratively to offer Ally Space training. This training will provide information and resources to support the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) members of our campus community. Our hope is to provide a network of faculty, staff, and students who are prepared to serve as a resource for students by training small groups at a time. Over 100 UMass Lowell community members have volunteered to become allies, including faculty, staff, and students. You, too, can make a real difference! Participants who complete the training will receive an Ally Space placard for their office space or room that indicates that you can provide support and resources for students who may identify as GLB or T.
