Transgender Working Group

The Transgender Working Group was established in 2016 in an effort to ensure that all University community members feel respected and valued.  The Transgender Working Group is comprised of faculty, staff and students from various groups and departments including: Academic Affairs, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Facilities, Housing, Rainbow Alliance, and Student Affairs.  The group studies best practices in higher education, evaluates current University processes, and makes recommendations for creating a more inclusive campus for transgender individuals.  The Working Group has implemented trainings for staff and faculty, responded to individual concerns or issues, and provided guidance on university wide initiatives such as the preferred name initiative.

If you have questions about the group or if you would like to bring an issue to the Working Group’s attention, please email: crb103@pitt.edu
