The Ally Network provides an avenue through which straight-identified allies and people who identify as a member of the LGBT community can actively express their affirmation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The Ally Network members are identified by displaying the Ally symbol, thus signifying their space is safe to talk about LGBT issues and that students and employees can be “out” or reveal their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Under the auspices of the Office of the President, the Institutional Equity and Diversity Office provides institutional leadership aimed at enhancing a respectful, diverse and inclusive work and learning environment at the College of Southern Maryland. We provide a range of programs and educational trainings that uphold values of equity and diversity, as well as support compliance efforts in the areas of equal opportunity, affirmative action, sexual and other forms of harassment prevention.
