About the event

Virtual NASPA Session 2024


Student affairs practitioners must have clear guidance to meet the needs of trans and nonbinary students and provide them with support in today’s hostile political climate. Participants in this session will learn about the updated and expanded Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals’ – Promising Policies and Practices for Supporting Trans and Nonbinary Students. Attendees will be provided concrete actions ranging from day-to-day practices to departmental and institutional policies to enact campus-wide change.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn about the development of promising policies and practices for supporting trans and nonbinary students
  2. Gain an understanding of the types of organizational policies and practices (i.e., specific to a multitude of campus areas) that can expand inclusion, equity, and belonging
  3. Receive guidance about concrete actions participants can take to implement these new policies and practices on their campuses
