Concerns may include: I am transgender and thinking about transitioning, considering coming out as transgender, wanting to learn more about being transgender, a friend recently transitioned, not sure what it means to be transgender.
We aim to provide a sense of the LGBTQ-inclusive atmosphere we have on our campus, suggest resources for those who want to learn more to better our campus, and also to offer support and guidance for LGBTQ students, staff, faculty, and their friends and family. Productive inquiry best takes place when individuals can explore and share their experience and thoughts as equal members of our community, uninhibited by prejudice or discrimination.
The University of Rochester envisions itself as a community that welcomes, encourages, and supports individuals who desire to contribute to and benefit from the institution’s mission of teaching, research, patient care, performance, and community service. In a pluralistic culture, that community includes faculty, students, and staff who represent important differences.
The University of Rochester includes gender identity and expression as a protected group in its non-discrimination policy in affirmation of the University’s philosophy that all students should be treated fairly and respectfully. As we strive to be a more diverse and inclusive campus, we recognize the importance of having policies and practices that support students who identify as transgender, gender variant, and/or gender nonconforming (GNC). This website provides information to support trans and GNC students as they navigate campus facilities, resources and systems.
