Abstract

To discover the ways students perceive allyship, five students from identity groups that commonly suffer from discrimination were interviewed to determine what they perceive to be the role of allies in their lives and in society at large. A content analysis of these interviews resulted in a list of potential types allyship and ways of expressing allyship.
