A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

UNT Ally
Ally Training educates and trains students, staff and faculty to create a safe zone for GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) people at UNT. Ally training is for anyone who’s interested. The goal is to achieve a culture where any person can study and/or work in an environment free of discrimination and harassment. Participants receive an Ally certificate to display in their office, workspace, or dorm room. The certificate signifies completion of the training, but it also helps others identify individuals on campus (“Allies”) who are open and understanding and who they can talk to, in confidence, about issues, questions, fears and concerns. Ally Training supports UNT’s mission of providing a culturally diverse and mutually respectful environment where every member of the university community can feel safe, respected, and accepted.
