Acting with an awareness that some students, colleagues, and program participants use gender neutral facilities can help people be more included and successful in your class or program.
- In your syllabus, tell students where they can find the gender neutral restroom nearest the classroom. See the sample syllabus language here.
- If you provide a short break during the class period, provide enough time for students who need to access a gender neutral restroom. Remember that students may need to travel to another floor, or another building, to access one.
- On your office door, in your office, or at an event location, use this sign to share the nearest gender neutral restroom location.
- At the beginning of the academic year, and at other times when interacting with students and others who are new to Western, display the gender neutral restroom map too.
- When orienting someone who is visiting or new to campus, if you point out the nearest women’s or men’s room location, also point out the location of the nearest gender neutral restroom.
