Consistent with the University of Arizona’s values of compassion and inclusion, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) supports transgender Wildcat students, faculty, staff, and other community members. ODI understands that the impact of unequal treatment on transgender community members can be severe and dangerous. When one Wildcat is excluded, we are all implicated in the cost to human dignity. ODI encourages members of the University community to learn more about the experiences of our transgender colleagues and students and how they are impacted by discrimination. Please support student-led initiatives and projects aimed at strengthening the visibility, belonging, and safety of LGBTQ+ Wildcats.
