LGBTQ Ally Program

embracing diversity  •  teaching awareness & sensitivity  •  providing support & resources.


Anyone can be an ally, but it takes someone SPECIAL to be a Brookdale GLBTQ Ally!

In 2009, a small group of Brookdale faculty, administrators & staff began development of what would become the Brookdale ALLY program. Since then, more than 50 Brookdale community members have participated in training & have signed up to be “Brookdale Allies.” Those listed in the database below (under “Find an Ally”) have committed to serving as resources for students, staff, & faculty looking for support while members of our Community. While our specific focus is on LGBTQ concerns, we are committed to Brookdale as a welcoming place and to the dignity of all members of the community, regardless of their race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or identity, class, religion, age, or ability.
