LGBT & Allies Council
The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies Council advises senior administrators, through the Deans of Students, about the concerns and needs of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community (students, faculty and staff) at the University of Maine.
The Council promotes education and awareness activities for the campus community, advocates for the inclusion of relevant material and approaches in the academic curriculum and provides a forum for discussing the needs of the LGBT community. The Council also advises the Director of Equal Opportunity on problems that may involve discrimination and harassment of LGBT persons.
The Council includes representatives from all segments of the UMaine community – undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, professional and classified staff. The sub-committees of the Allies Council include: Education and Advocacy, Curricula Development and Social/Event Planning.
