As of December, 2003, the MIT
nondiscrimination policy has included explicit protection for
MIT added this language to reaffirm its enduring commitment to
maintain an environment of respect for all members of the
MIT community. It is against MIT's policy to discriminate against
anyone on the basis of gender identity.
The Trans Issues Group (see the "get involved" section to learn more about the group) continues to work with various MIT offices and administrators to explore, assess, and improve the areas of MIT policy and community life where trans concerns may be better addressed.
If you experience anything at MIT that does not appear to be in concert with MIT's policy of nondescrimination on the basis of gender identity, please contact us. The staff of the Rainbow Lounge is available to advise and assist MIT community members with any trans-related challenges that occur on campus.
