This is the time of year that we really need your help getting the word out to others on campus that you think would be a good candidate for ALLIES. One goal we have this year is to make sure that there is an ALLY in every building on campus. Please be a good ambassador for ALLIES and the university by making it your goal to recruit at least one person to sign up for an ALLIES training! Of course, we also would love to see you at as many events as you can possibly attend. The reception on October 11 is particularly important for our students to meet the ALLIES we have here and for you to meet them. It is always a wonderful reception!
Thank you for all you do for our students!
