Faculty/Staff Ally

Inclusive teaching with Wayne Riggs and Kami Day

In 2011, Faculty Ally was created in a joint effort between the Gender + Equality Center and The Writing Center. Faculty and Graduate Teaching Assistants can make a significant impact by becoming allies to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer campus community. Allies can create inclusive classrooms where students feel safe to learn free from bias, homonegativity, and transnegativity.

  • Over 200 Faculty and GTA's have already attended training, representing 50 colleges, departments or schools across campus
  • The training is free and open to any OU faculty or GTA
  • Topics covered in the training include: interrupting bias in the classroom, ways to create an inclusive classroom, and creative approaches to include LGBTQ content into the curriculum

Contact gec@ou.edu or 405.325.4929 with any questions or for more information on upcoming training session. Campus departments and organizations can also request specific trainings outside of the regularly scheduled trainings.

Upcoming training sessions:

  • Thursday, October 19th & 26th, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. *Faculty Ally - Two Part Session*
