President's Council on Transgender Inclusivity

The charge of the President's Council on Transgender Inclusivity is to explore, review and recommend best practices and policies that will affirm and support transgender students, faculty and staff at Hood College. 

We are here to improve inclusivity for everyone at Hood, with special focus on issues that affect transgender members of the community. This includes work on college policies and procedures, as well as advocating for transgender students, staff and faculty.
