Gender Identity Expression in Higher Education

As campuses navigate the complex issues surrounding gender identity and gender expression, AACRAO supports both members and the students they serve. AACRAO Values promote inclusiveness within the expected Principles and Standards of Behavior. Working through this conversation with members will serve the associations goals by

  • addressing this emergent issue [SF1],
  • identifying and promoting best practices [SF2],
  • advancing engagement in federal policy development [SF3], and
  • promoting access and success for the impacted student population [SF4]

As the work group addresses this issue, we encourage members to reach out to U.S. Senators and Representatives to do the same by updating their contact forms to make the selection of a prefix optional. Learn more at the AACRAO Advocacy Center.
