Texas Tech University

Allies Program


Students, faculty, and staff make important choices to strengthen the inclusivity of the Texas Tech Campus. These actions range from the checking our assumptions, educating ourselves and others, offering solutions when needed, and connecting with available resources to support the LGBTQIA community.

Throughout the year, a variety of training opportunities are offered by the Office of LGBTQIA. These trainings include becoming an ally for beginners all the way to more advanced, topic-focused trainings. Some trainings are tailored to specific audiences. Trainings can also be requested for specific groups.

To join the Allies Program, we ask that individuals participate in "Becoming an Ally." After completion, individuals are provided the Allies Program Participant Commitment to complete. Then, emblems are provided in either card- (5x7) or magnet-form (2x3.5) for display.

Faculty Panel on Experiences with LGBTQIA Individuals and Topics of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
