In keeping with a university tradition that is committed to inclusiveness and social justice, on June 1, 2002, American University became one of the first dozen colleges in the United States to explicitly include "gender identity and expression" in our non-discrimination policies.
In order to assist trans members of the campus community with navigating the policies and practices of the university, we encourage you to speak with the Coordinator of LGBTQ & Diversity Programs, Kameron Winters. He is available to assist you with everything from changing your name on university records, to getting a new American University ID card, to finding local resources.
We have worked hard to make the campus more inclusive, if you have noticed something that could help to make campus more trans-friendly, please feel free to contact us. This is an ongoing effort and we would appreciate your input.
The following guide will provide some information about current policies; if you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the Center for Diversity & Inclusion.
