Trans and Gender-diverse Inclusive Framework
York St John University is committed to providing a trans-inclusive environment and supporting trans people, including those who identify as non-binary, genderqueer, and more.
The framework is a set of documents designed to provide information to trans and gender-diverse students and staff, and help the university community ensure we are as trans-inclusive as possible.
This is supported by training for staff.
We have a network of named persons in most services that any student or staff member can approach with confidence that their enquiry will be dealt with in a sensitive and knowledgeable way (see contacts).

We keep the framework under review, and are working to raise awareness. We warmly welcome feedback to help us realise our ambition to become a trans-inclusive university.
If you have questions, comments or suggestions for the framework, please email our Equality and Diversity Adviser, Marije Davidson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Students can email our dedicated contact Anna Deacon at email@example.com.
