Transgender students, staff & faculty: Pursuant to the guidance of the US Department of Education and the US Department of Justice as well as the University’s non-discrimination policy, WSU treats a student’s gender identity as the student’s sex for the purpose of Title IX. This means that WSU will not treat a transgender student differently from the way it treats other students of the same gender identity. Under Title IX, there is no medical diagnosis or treatment requirement that students must meet as a prerequisite to being treated consistent with their gender identity.
- Restrooms: WSU permits students to use the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity. Additionally, the university offers universal access restrooms. A list of those facilities can be located here: http://www.wright.edu/student-affairs/culture-and-identity-centers/lgbtqa-affairs/campus-resources
- Gender Inclusive Housing: WSU is working to provide gender inclusive housing options to students. For more information, please contact Petey Peterson, Director of the Office of LGBTQA Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Chosen Names & Pronouns: WSU is working to provide options for students to utilize chosen names and pronouns. Until our systems can accommodate these requests, please feel free to utilize these tools to let community members know the name and pronouns you would like them to use: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_wkFIF7ObdVczdiNDNGaUx4RzA/view and http://www.wright.edu/sites/www.wright.edu/files/page/attachments/Preferred-Name-Change-Form.pdf
