Important message of support from the WGS Department

The Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality affirms the importance of respecting and supporting all students, faculty, and staff at the University of Virginia, including those of us who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender questioning.  We believe that maintaining the excellence of the University as a public institution necessitates a positive affirmation of gender-inclusivity and the investment of resources to ensure that trans and nonbinary people thrive.
