The Council also advises the Director of Equal Opportunity on problems that may involve discrimination and harassment of GLBT persons.

The Council includes representatives from all segments of UMaine community – undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, professional and classified staff. The sub-committees of the Allies Council include: Education and Advocacy, Curricula Development and Social/Event Planning.
