Alliance for Inclusion

Who We Are:
Alliance for Inclusion (AFI) is a group of dental students, dental hygiene students and faculty that share a common interest in increasing awareness and advocating for the LGBTQ community. Collectively, we aim to educate dental students, staff, faculty, and dental professionals about diversity issues in hopes of encouraging awareness, mentoring students, as well as providing perspectives in treating a diverse patient population.

The Purpose of Our Organization:
To provide a safe and supportive environment for diverse dental students, with a focus on the LGBTQ+ community, advocating for their rights, and providing resources to help make their dental education a positive experience. To educate the dental community in issues relating to the LGBTQ identity and foster relationships with other gay-straight alliances within the greater UofM community.
