Gender Affirmation Policy

The University's Gender Affirmation Policy was published on 8 November 2021.

Following extensive consultation, the Gender Affirmation Policy details the University of Melbourne’s support for students and staff in affirming their gender identity.

The policy reinforces the University’s commitment to building a culture that is safe, inclusive and respectful for all. Everyone is entitled to a study environment or workplace free from harassment, bullying and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or intersex status.

The policy provides clear guidance for staff and students on how to inform the University of intention to affirm gender identity and how to access support.
