This fall, the Chronicle of Higher Education ran a special report, “Diversity in Academe: Transgender on Campus.” Touching on topics from pronouns to restrooms, the report issued a call to provide equal access to transgender students on college campuses with an emphasis on creating safe environments in which all students may thrive. Student interviews captured in a powerful video can prompt us to think about providing safe and inclusive classroom environments for library instruction as well.
