GW Adds Transgender Protection to Non-Discrimination Policy

On Friday, the Faculty Senate of the George Washington University moved to include "gender identity and expression" to its non-discrimination policy, the Hatchet reports. G.W.'s added protection puts its policy in line with the D.C. Human Rights Act, which added those protections in 2006. The official recognition as a protected group, at the very least, will grant G.W.'s transgender community more visibility when filing complaints with the university. Earlier this year, I wrote about the on-campus experience of Devin Alston-Smith, a trans student at G.W. who was frustrated by the university response after reporting alleged harassment at the hands of his sorority sisters.
