EDUCAUSE Live! Webinar
Gender Identity in Higher Education: How Technology Can Support (or Limit) Inclusiveness on Campus

As gender identity, gender expression, and the rights and protections of trans persons gain more prominence in the media and legislatures across the country, more institutions are being compelled to address these issues head on. This webinar will focus on best practices, case studies, and methods on how technology can support nonbinary gender identifying persons and trans persons. We will focus on how supporting diversity and inclusiveness on campus can contribute to an institution's larger objectives and mission.


  • Explore issues faced by LGBTQIA students on college campuses
  • Discuss how LGBTQIA students navigate using names and pronouns and the impact that inclusive (or exclusive) campus data practices have on student experiences
  • Understand institutional resistance points for adopting inclusive data practices
  • Identify best practices for collecting, displaying, and reporting sensitive student personal data such as gender, gender identity, etc.
