College life can present particular challenges for transgender students. Even in the more welcoming environment often associated with higher education; certain situations can present significant legal, human and ethical dilemmas for the school. From housing to campus clubs to locker rooms, colleges and universities need to have policies and personnel to address the needs of transgender students and make the experience a positive one.
Colleges and universities need a clear understanding of the laws that apply to them regarding their transgender students as well as the potential impact of executive actions, court decisions, and a new administration. They should also make sure that the internal policies and procedures are in conformity with these requirements and serve to foster an educational environment that serves all students. What about private colleges and institutions with religious affiliations? How do their obligations differ in admissions, accommodations and other transgender issues?
Please join Jessica Cino, associate professor of law and associate dean for academic affairs at Georgia State University College of Law, as she discusses the necessary steps colleges and universities should take to ensure they deal with legal and practical issues, develop appropriate policies and procedures, provide a safe learning environment, handle discipline issues and limit liability for the school, its administrators and staff.
