There is a multi-stall facility signed as “Multi-Stall All Gender Restroom,” and another single-stall lockable facility signed as “Restroom.” Both of these are on the first floor, which offers full access for anyone with or without Husky Card access credentials inside William H.

Restrooms signed as “Women” or “Men” also include the full language of the school’s restroom use policy on the door sign. This language is as follows: “All individuals are welcome to use the restroom that is consistent with their gender identity.”

OUTLaws receives annual funding through the Student Bar Association which is awarded funds through the administration.
Opportunities are the same for all student organizations. OUTLaws has used funds for social events and workshops in the 2021-2022 academic year.
Our primary focus has been creating an inclusive environment for all our faculty and students. We have brought in speakers to address faculty, students and staff and will continue offering such trainings.
We are working on such a training plan.
We do not capture pronouns and honorifics during the registration process but use NameCoach to provide an opportunity for students and instructors to share pronouns via Canvas courses. Each course has this enabled and each person has the option to share preferred name and pronouns.
The Dean for Students and Manager of Student Life consult regularly with campus resources like the Q Center to be sure we are aware of and collaborating with all resources to support LGBTQ+ students.
