Allies on Campus

Ally Pledge

I believe Wake Tech should be a safe, supportive place for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

This is why I have pledged to

  • Not use anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) language or slurs
  • Intervene, if I safely can, in situations where students are being harassed
  • Support efforts to make this and every school safe for all students.

Ally List

The following faculty and staff members have pledged to be support LGBTQ students and their allies at Wake Tech. To find an ally, look for the Safe Space sign. If you would like to become a faculty or staff ally, please contact the Full Spectrum advisors for more information.
