Allies Listserv

The Allies listserv was established about 15 years ago as a way for GLBTQA faculty and staff and GLBTQ friendly faculty and staff to communicate. A few years ago the listserv was expanded to include partners of WSU employees, alumni and even adult children of WSU employees. Anyone who is on the list can send an email to the list by posting it to allies@wright.edu. However, if you are not on the list you cannot send a message to the list. The names of the members of the list do not appear on emails. When you post to the list, your name does appear as the sender of the message. There are about 100 people currently on the list. At this point the focus of the list is on issues of interest to this community. Members often forward links, but the list is also there for discussion. Otherwise, it is our group and our list. Feel free to initiate gatherings or projects.
To join the Allies listserv contact Cheryl Meyer, Ph.D., J.D. (cheryl.meyer@wright.edu).
