Military Ally Program

A Safe Space for Military-Connected Students

Western's Military Ally Program is a two-part class that provides faculty, staff, and administration with the resources required to be identified as a safe space for students who are currently serving, those who have previously served, and their dependents. 

This program consists of an online class hosted through e-learning and a 90 minute in person session.

The online class covers topics like:

  • The need for an ally program
  • Transitioning from military to academia
  • Resources specific to this population
  • What it means to be an ally

Where the in-person session will consist of scenario driven discussions and a military-connected student panel.

Completion of both the online and in-person session will certify you as a Military Ally.
