In 2011 the University of Wollongong started the Ally Network, a network of allies consisting of students and staff supporting or identifying as LGBTI, which now boasts more than 120 members. Allies provide a safe and respectful environment to help make UOW a better place to work and study.

Marcus O’Donnell Journalism Program Convenor

UOW is a tremendously supportive place for LGBTI staff and students. We have openly gay, lesbian and trans staff across all levels. I was hired into the journalism program based in large part on my experience as editor in the gay and lesbian media. Because UOW is a regional university in an area that can still be challenging for LGBTI people, its role as a beacon of openness and support is particularly important.
