Century College offers many resources to help all students in addition to those offered by the LGBTQ Center. Additionally, included below is a list of resources for transgender & gender nonconforming students. We know how difficult it can be to be transgender and navigate campus, therefore we have provided resources available to you and those supporting you while attending Century College no matter where you identify on the trans+ spectrum.

Gender Inclusive Restrooms
Century College is committed to ensuring all staff, faculty, students, and visitors, have access to safe, accessible restrooms on East and West campus. Gender inclusive restrooms are restrooms designed for everyone, but can specifically be helpful for:
Transgender and gender non-conforming communities
Families/parents with children
Those with special needs
As gender inclusive restrooms are limited, students who feel safe are protected under Title IX to utilize restrooms that best align with their gender identity. There are ongoing efforts to increase the number of gender inclusive restrooms and locker rooms.
Are there all gender/single stall restrooms available on campus?
There are all gender/single stall restrooms on both East and West campuses:
West: 1st floor next to the Loading Dock; 2nd floor next to the Fishbowl Conference Room
Why are all gender or single stall bathrooms important?
Everyone has the right to use the bathroom without fear! Besides reinforcing gender norms, bathrooms that are clearly marked as male/female force many individuals to enter bathroom environments that they consider uncomfortable and unsafe. People face discrimination daily for entering marked bathrooms containing other individuals who perceive their gender to be variant from the social norm. Increasing awareness and identifying the locations of gender-safe bathrooms will prevent people from being threatened by violence and harassment.
Century College is a campus that welcomes all students and is committed to their success. As students, employees, and the community, we pledge to work towards social action and dismantling structural racism. Regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, immigrant status or disability, we celebrate, support, and embrace learners of diverse communities.

LGBTQIA+ communities are protected classes under the Century College and Minnesota State Non-Discrimination Statement.
If you or someone you know experience discrimination based on gender identity, expression, or sexual identity, contact Rosa Rodriguez.
Title IX has become a powerful tool on college campuses for combatting sexual offenses and gender discrimination. While Title IX is widely known for its role in opportunities in athletics, the arm of Title IX reaches farther to affect pregnant, gender non-conforming, and any other student that feels opportunities, services, and environments were altered because of their gender.
Currently there is no official policy regarding pronouns. If you are having issues in class, with peers, or elsewhere on campus you can reach out to Rosa Rodriguez.
Navigating the healthcare system can be difficult and anxiety provoking as a trans or gender nonconforming individual. If you are looking for a healthcare provider who is safe, respectful, and knowledgeable check out the databases below:
