The Queer Ally Program is open to students, student organizations, departments, colleges, and committees. To request a workshop go here.
Our mission, in accordance with UC Merced's mission statement, is to promote education, acceptance, and confidential support of gender and sexual diversity.
The Queer Ally Program is a campuswide program designed to visibly identify students, staff and faculty members who support the LGBTQ population, understand some of the issues facing LGBTQ individuals, and are aware of the various LGBTQ resources. The three-hour workshop provides a foundation of knowledge needed to be an effective ally to LGBTQ students and those questioning their sexuality. Campus-wide workshops are offered multiple times every semester, but workshops can be arranged for other groups if requested.
