  • Advocates meet monthly to discuss readings and plan Ally workshops.
  • Advocates support and attend gender equity events whenever possible.
  • The Advocates / Allies Program is a component of the UWM’s broader strategic initiatives aimed toward improving campus climate.
  • The Advocates will also be responsible for providing training for faculty men who volunteer to be Allies and for working closely with the Allies group. The selected Advocates will be trained by a trainer who has expertise in advocacy and comes from North Dakota State University.
