Utah State faculty, staff, and students who are interested in volunteering to be a member of Allies on Campus must attend a three-hour seminar. The Ally Seminar includes: An overview of the purpose of Allies on Campus, information on issues that LGBTQ students may be facing, information on resources and referrals, interaction with a panel of LGBTQ students, questions and answers, and an opportunity to sign a contract. The Allies on Campus Contract is an agreement to provide a "safe zone" for anyone dealing with sexual or gender orientation issues. It emphasizes the expectations and responsibilities of an Ally, what an Ally is (support and referral) and is not (professional counselor), and gives Allies on Campus permission to include that member's name and contact information on the Allies on Campus web page and membership lists. Attending the Ally Seminar is required before anyone can hang an ALLY sticker.
