Understanding the Needs and Difficulties of Trans and Non-Binary Students and Creating a More Gender-Inclusive Campus.

"Trans and gender non-binary students regularly face both institutional and individual discrimination on campuses. Colleges are ethically and legally obligated to be doing more to support them in both policy and practice." Genny Beemyn, Ph.D.

This webinar will discuss the complex ways that students understand and express their gender identities today and the best practices and policies to support trans and gender non-conforming students. Many trans students have negative experiences in middle and high schools and in their home communities. While those who are subsequently able to go away to college have more leeway to be out as transgender, they still often experience significant roadblocks on campuses to being recognized and respected as themselves. To improve the lives of trans youth and young adults, changes must be made throughout educational institutions.
