Transgender Guidance

The aims of the Transgender policy and associated guidance are:

  • to assist members of the University in understanding gender diversity in relation to the activities of the University;

  • to clarify roles and responsibilities for supporting students, staff and alumni who wish to make, or have made changes to their gender identity; and
    • to ensure that the University has protocols for changing student, staff and alumni records and for storing confidential information relating to gender identity.

The guidance is informative, not prescriptive and is intended to form the basis for sensitive support of transgender individuals.

It is recommended that colleges adopt this policy and guidance rather than developing their own. 

Support checklists for staff and students in the right-hand menu is intended to signal some of the main areas to be considered when an individual states that they intend to transition.
