Creating Inclusive Classrooms for Trans* and Gender Expansive Students
At UC Berkeley we strive to make all spaces inclusive and welcoming to all members of the Cal community. Faculty, Graduate Student Instructors and all other teaching staff have a particular responsibility in creating learning environments where students bring their full selves into a classroom thus allowing them to stretch to their fullest academic potential.
Creating an inclusive space for transgender and gender expansive students requires instructors to consciously insert new practices into how they manage their classrooms. This tip sheet will hopefully get you started in reducing or eliminating any unintentional exclusionary practices.
