‘Trans friendly’ campus

In the August issue of The Advocate, Penn is listed among the magazine’s picks for the nation’s “Top 10 Trans Friendly Colleges and Universities.” Earning a score of five out of five possible stars for demonstrating “a commitment to the trans community by implementing many trans-supportive policies,” Penn is cited as one of the most supportive campuses for LGBT students in America.

“Besides having all of the major trans-supportive policies and services in place,” the magazine states, “its LGBT Center … contributes to an environment where trans students do not feel marginalized.”
