Dear students, staff, faculty, and community partners—

On behalf of the Office for Equity and Diversity, Student Affairs, and the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, we reaffirm our unwavering support for members of our campus who identify as transgender and gender non-conforming.  We know the challenges daily faced and creativity daily used to face these challenges, and pledge our tireless help in fostering success for trans students at the U. The University of Utah’s strong commitment to non-discrimination anchors both our values and our practices.

As a declaration of our ongoing vigilance, we will continue to advocate for the inclusion of all-gender restrooms throughout our institution (their locations can be found on the U campus map) and work passionately to ensure that our transgender campus community feels welcome, supported, and unafraid.
