University personnel wishing to participate are invited to apply to the project. Training is offered periodically. Participation is individual and voluntary. Allies may also nominate individuals to participate. Supervisors, however, are not encouraged to recommend or require their staff to participate. Interest in the training may be communicated to Dr. Elena Macías.
Only individuals who successfully complete the training will be awarded the decal. Participants must display the characteristics of an Ally in order to successfully complete the project. The judgment of the training staff is final and may not be appealed.
