  1. accompanying them to class,
  2. introduce them to other university peers/friends,
  3. participate in university-sponsored events and gatherings,
  4. assisting them to integrate into the university community through an inclusive model, and
  5. provide other types of supports and experiences in a social manner.

In addition, allies will have the opportunities to gain teaching and leadership experiences related to coursework. Together, WSU ROAR students and peer allies create inclusive experiences with positive opportunities learning and personal growth for each other.
