 Ally Logo 


The Rice Ally Program is a student, faculty, and staff educational program. The Ally Program goals are to raise awareness about the ways homophobia and heterosexism impact everyone, and to teach skills in being an Ally to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning community.  Being a Rice Ally is a great way for anybody to show their support for the GLBTQ community at Rice and beyond. To become a Rice Ally, you must first attend an Ally training session.  Rice Ally training sessions are held a couple of times each semester, and are roughly 3 hours long.   

Participants will learn about GLBTQ terms and history, work in groups through case scenarios, and hear from a student panel regarding their experiences at Rice.   Upon signing an Ally contract, participants will get an Ally placard to display in their office or room.
