Best Practices for Gender Transition on Campus

The University of California, Merced is committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all members of its community. All University community members have the right to safely express their gender identity, to be judged based on their merit and ability, and to be free from discrimination and harassment. As part of our commitment to ensure the professional and academic success of all staff, faculty and students, the University has adopted these best practices as a resource for those who may be or are transgender, their colleagues, managers, friends and/or allies. These best practices are intended to assist any transgender individual, gender variant, gender nonconforming, individual, colleague, and/or ally members of the community with navigating through resources, policies and practices of the University during a gender transition, as well as to assist University community members in their efforts to support transgender community members.
