The ALLY Program is available at King’s College to assist faculty, staff and students in becoming resources for students who are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgendered. ALLY members provide a safe and confidential space for students to discuss GLBTQ issues and concerns. ALLY members also assist in eliminating all forms of bias, prejudice, hate crimes, and discrimination against GLBTQ students on the King’s College campus.
Faculty, staff and students of King’s College who have been trained in the ALLY Program display the above ALLY Symbol on the door of their office or residence hall rooms. This symbol indicates the individual’s willingness to discuss GLBTQ concerns.
