Transgender Panel and Discussion Workshop

If your schedule at all allows, please consider participating in this learning opportunity organized by Human Resources. This workshop responds to the call to action provided by PLU students last academic year and also aligns with the guidance provided by the Dear Colleague Letter for Transgender Students shared by the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice in spring of 2016. The session also provides an opportunity to specifically invest in the success of students who identify as transgender and to begin to address challenges to their success.

Please RSVP your commitment to participate by emailing Human Resources at
