Ally Safe Zone

The goal of the ALLY Safe Zone program provides a welcoming environment for LGBTQ individuals at UTRGV, by establishing an identifiable network of allies who can provide support, information, and a safe place for the community at the university.

Become an ALLY

The ALLY Safe Zone program is open to students, faculty and staff. Workshops to learn about becoming an ally are hosted monthly during the fall and spring semesters.


Participants will have the opportunity to confront the idea of privilege, learn about the LGBTQ community, interact with students who identify as LGBTQ, and obtain the tools to develop plans for making a difference. Our allies believe that bigotry and discrimination, specifically regarding LGBTQ people, is not tolerated.
