Transgender/Trans Awareness: delves deeper into topics related to gender identity and expression. Participants will gain a better understanding of trans identity, campus resources, challenges individuals from these communities face on campus, and strategies for becoming an increasingly supportive ally. We encourage participants to have completed Phase 1 & 2 prior to attending Trans Awareness however it is not required.
