Transgender Student Resources

The Office of Intercultural Engagement seeks to create an affirming and safe environment for transgender students on and off campus. We recognize all students under the transgender umbrella, including but not limited to: genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, trans man, trans woman, two-spirit, intergender, and non-binary. This list of resources serves transgender students who are questioning their identity, transitioning, or looking for support. If there is any information you feel is missing from this page, please contact us so we can update our information.
