Event Description

Create a Safe and Inclusive Campus Facility for Trans Students While Complying with Title IX

“Many Transgendered students come to college ready to be themselves, to finally be able to express their gender identity, but too many colleges shut gendered doors—bathroom doors, locker room doors, res hall doors— in their faces, telling them in no uncertain terms, ‘while you might be ready to be out, we are not ready for you.’”

Individuals who do not identify as female or male need to have access to gender-inclusive bathrooms/restrooms/locker rooms, which requires the college to provide these facilities. Gender-inclusive campus facilities are not just for trans students, faculty, and staff. Such facilities are open to all and benefit many campus community members.

This webinar by expert speaker Genny Beemyn will share strategies to develop restrooms, residence hall bathrooms, and locker rooms in recreational centers and athletic buildings that can address the needs of transgendered students, including an examination of social and political concerns and the financial cost. The experiences of several campuses will be discussed as case studies to help other colleges create transgender-supportive campus facilities.

Session Highlights:

  • Understand the impediments that Transgendered students face in using gender-biased facilities.
  • Learn the legal requirements around Transgendered students’ access to restrooms, shower rooms, and locker rooms.
  • Learn the necessary practices, beyond the legal requirements, to develop Transgendered-inclusive facilities.
  • Better understand the process of identifying restrooms across a campus to be converted to all-gender facilities, the costs of reconfiguration, and how to present the information to campus administrators for funding. 
  • Hear how different campuses have sought to foster and create inclusive restrooms, shower rooms, and locker rooms and the obstacles faced in doing so
  • Understand the need for gender-inclusive facilities
  • Know what are the expectations of Title IX to prevent discrimination against Transgendered students
  • Learn the best practices for creating gender-inclusive bathrooms and locker rooms
