Furman University does not discriminate on the basis of gender identity. Moreover, it strives toward an inclusive community that all students can experience consistent with their gender identity. Gender identity and its expression may develop at a different pace for each individual. Consequently, the university created this guide to inform students of their options. Students may pick and choose from this guide the resources that best fit their needs; accordingly, utilizing one office’s resources does not necessarily result in all offices listed below becoming aware of a student’s gender identity. The extent to which individuals take advantage of these resources is designed to be self-determinate, which empowers students to select when, how, and to whom gender identity is disclosed.
