Yale is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community where all people are recognized and respected, including transgender and gender non-conforming students, faculty, and staff. Gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation are all protected under the university’s non-discrimination policy, and Connecticut law prohibits discrimination based on gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation in education, employment, public accommodation, housing, and granting financial credit. These robust protections exist regardless of how agencies interpret federal laws. Additional information about Yale’s policies and resources can be found at the Office of LGBTQ Resources website.
Through our mission of education and research, Yale prepares students for leadership and service in a diverse and complex world. Scholarly research, lectures, workshops, and other support are available for students and others interested in gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and the experience of transgendered and gender nonconforming individuals.
