- About Us
The Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life engages the University of Minnesota to be the most welcoming and affirming environment possible for students, employees, and community members.
While we impact individual students and employees through many of our events, trainings, and gatherings, we also seek to institute social change & openness to LGBTQIA identities across the U of M administration, faculty, academic departments, and staff offices.
We strive to change the U and the community in systemic ways that improve campus climate:
Academic Trainings - the Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life has gone into hundreds of classrooms at the request of faculty, training thousands of students on LGBTQIA identities.
Facilities Management - we've partnered to create Gender Neutral Restrooms across the University. The majority of these restrooms are single-stall & wheelchair accessible, removing barriers that previously existed because of gender, disability, or safety concerns. Check out our Gender Neutral Restrooms Map!
Trans-Inclusive Health Benefits - the U of M Student Health Benefits Plan is now more inclusive of all bodies and genders, allowing for assistance with health care for students which is deemed medically necessary by a health care professional.
U of M Police Department - the Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life staff has provided LGBTQIA trainings on sexual orientation and gender identity for university police officers & security personnel.
