Allies attend a 3-hour workshop where they learn about the benefits and responsibilities of being an ally at Texas A&M and globally. After completing training, they can be identified by a placard placed outside their office door. The CVM hosts Aggie Ally workshops in our complex to provide our faculty, staff, and students a closer location to attend training.
