Gender Affirming Care at UHS

UHS reaffirms its commitment to offering Gender Affirming Care 

In light of recent national conversations, University Health Services reaffirms its commitment to offering Gender Affirming Care to Transgender and Gender Diverse CMU students. This commitment is in alignment with the American College Health Association's recent statement on Student Health and Well-Being, which reads as follows: "... we state our opposition to any policy, at any level, that restricts, limits, or discourages access to gender-related services for transgender and nonbinary youth and/or adults in our communities."
