The ESU Ally Program is a program offered to all members of the ESU community to educate them on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community.

It runs from 60-90 minutes and is offered periodically throughout the semester.

The program offers an overview of definitions common to the LGBTQ community as well as statistics related to the oppression of the LGBTQA community.

The differences between domestic partners, civil unions, and marriage are also covered.

Most importantly, this program educates people with interest in bettering the University community on issues affecting LGBTQ students and how to better support the LGBTQ community personally and academically.

Programs may also be requested for classrooms or residence halls through the LGBTQA Program Center at (570) 422-3614.
