Supporting Trans Students in the Classroom

  • Frist Campus Center Room 330 (map)

Trans and gender non-conforming students are increasingly comfortable being out in the classroom but often are frustrated or let down by their instructors' apathy, lack of knowledge or discomfort about their identities and experiences. Instructors who can address the needs of trans and gender non-conforming students in the classroom can make a huge difference in these students' classroom success and their passion for the topic being taught. In this workshop with Princeton LGBT Center staff Judy Jarvis and Andy Cofino, attendees will learn vocabulary relevant to trans and gender non-conforming students, information on the campus climate for trans students, best practices for pronouns in the classroom, and a robust Q&A. We welcome AIs with any and all levels of experience working with trans and gender non-conforming students.
