The Alliance

Alliance Eboard


The Alliance is a student run organization that offers opportunities to meet, support and plan events for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students and their straight supporters. Dedicated to the acceptance and understanding of the GLBT community, we serve as a resource to the greater Salem State community, offering ourselves and our knowledge in an attempt to enlighten others.

We focus our attention primarily on the student population at Salem State but do not limit ourselves to the students alone. We have branched out from being a social collective to providing education and political activism in Massachusetts.

Our office is located in the Ellison Campus Center on the second floor, room 206.  You can reach us at x7541.
