LEARN’s Gender Diversity Working Group is a collective of faculty, staff, and students at UNCG who aim to promote the overall wellness, success, and equity of gender diverse students through advocacy, education, and support.

We define gender diversity as individuals of Trans, Gender Non-conforming, Non-binary, and Queer experience.

Our work to date (last updated September 2019):

Gender Diversity Toolkit:
This toolkit is intended to be an accessible document for gender diverse students, and all who support them within and beyond the university.
