The University of Salford
Aims and objectives
The University of Salford has noticed an increase in the numbers of students who have sought help with gender transition or are gender questioning. This increase warranted an exploration of how we support trans and non-binary students across the university.
After talking to our trans students to understand their specific needs, the university employed a trans student on a short contract to develop an action plan and web pages, strengthened links with local charities, and ensured frontline student services recieved training in trans awareness.
Benefit to other institutions
The project will help to:
- develop policy and practice for trans and non-binary students
- support staff in student welfare provision
- develop regional networks
- develop sensitivity to transgender, non-binary and gender identity questioning students.
