We Are Allies
Campus Recreation is proud to partner with the UM Allies program to promote a campus environment that is inclusive and supportive of all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
With the help of UM Allies, our department provides training to all of our student and professional staff. Campus Recreation staff learn language and skills to better support the LGBTQ community.
