What we’ve done so far:

  • Submitted a formal proposal to the Office of Residential Living for a new Living and Learning Community titled “Crossroads: Gender and Sexuality” that would be open to all students, including freshmen

  • Begun efforts for the inclusion of all-gender bathrooms in all new university buildings and signage changes on the poorly labeled all-gender bathrooms that currently exist

  • Begun discussions with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions about changing the way students indicate gender identity during the application process 

What we’re prioritizing for the rest of our term:

  • Continuing to conduct research and discussions with administrators about the possibility of all-gender bathrooms in current on-campus residential communities

  • Continuing to work with the Yates Field House on a non-discrimination statement for bathrooms and locker rooms

  • Strengthening GUSA’s relationship with the LGBTQ Resource Center and other on- and off-campus resources to better engage and support students

  • Engaging a variety of campus partners to build a coalition of support for the “Crossroads: Gender and Sexuality” Living and Learning Community

  • Working with the university to provide affordable or free HIV screening to students
