We believe that everyone deserves a safe place to live, work, and learn, free of bias, hate, and discrimination. Our transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender non-binary students, faculty, and staff add to the rich diversity of our campus community and contribute in significant ways every day. Given the issues related to transgender students that have been in the news recently, we want to reaffirm our commitment to those members of our community.

At UW-Madison we are committed to a campus that is inclusive for transgender people. We urge all Badgers to continue to build community and resilience with each other. You are not alone.
