The Pride Center offers Ally Training, which is an informative, interactive, fun, and brave space for faculty, staff, and students to become certified allies to EWU’s LGBTQ+ communities. Welcoming Project allies help create a more accepting, welcoming, and inclusive environment on EWU’s campuses. “Graduates” of the Welcoming Project receive an ally placard (or, for students, a button) that indicates they are an affirming person with whom LGBTQ+ folks can connect. Our hope is to have a Welcoming Project ally visible in every department and office on campus.
The Office of Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, and ADA Compliance offers a variety of training workshops to help faculty, staff, and students ensure compliance and thrive on a multicultural university campus.
