Understand Legal Issues So You Can Create a Culture of Inclusion Across Campus
From Bostock v. Clayton County to the Notice of Interpretation issued by the U.S. Department of Education on June 16, 2021, there are a number of legal issues facing our transgender students, faculty, and staff today. With the continuously changing landscape, rights for our transgender community members are also changing.
Our expert presenters who identify the new terrain higher education practitioners are asked to navigate to provide safe and inclusive environments for transgender students, while moving beyond mere compliance with legal expectations.
Get actionable takeaways so you can:
- Define common terms – ensure utilization of appropriate language across campus, both verbally and in writing.
- Lay a foundation of case law, recent resolution agreements, state statutes, guidance documents and regulations to get a sense for where the field is leaning as it relates to transgender rights for students, faculty, and staff – ensure you have accurate information so you can communicate clearly to important stakeholders.
- Identify resources for support – help transgender students, faculty, and staff as they navigate legal and campus processes, including those related to gender and name changes.
- Examine documents like the NCAA guidelines on inclusion and other items that influence our campus communities and contribute to positive campus cultures – move beyond legal requirements to create a welcoming community for students, faculty, and staff, inclusive of their gender identity or state of transition.
- Outline best practices for building cross-campus partnerships – foster a culture of inclusion for transgender community members.
