Trans Inclusion Training

Trans Inclusion Training is going through a curriculum update. We look forward to posting new dates in the near future. Please contact if you are seeking resources or have an immediate question.

Supporting Transgender Students, Staff and Faculty

From media coverage of transgender celebrities to national discussions of rights for transgender people, transgender and gender non-binary identities and experiences are more visible than ever. Via recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education, university staff, faculty and students are now required to update many policies and practices to be trans-inclusive, often with only limited knowledge of the concepts of gender identity and sexuality.

This training is designed to provide information about trans identities and help attendees develop skills to create inclusive and compliant spaces to support trans students, staff and faculty.

Through an interactive, 90-minute workshop, attendees will:

  • Explore transgender identities and terminology
  • Discuss relevant laws and policies that protect transgender and gender non-conforming people in higher-education settings
  • Develop and adapt necessary skills to support trans students, staff and faculty

You do not have to attend Safe Zone training before attending this training, though it is strongly encouraged.

Virtual Training Format

All Trans Inclusion Training sessions will be facilitated via Zoom.
