    Executive Summary

    Framework and Methodology

    The Committee to Improve Trans Inclusion (CITI) began meeting in June 2009 to examine Seattle University practices and make recommendations for implementation to Provost Isiaah Crawford, Vice President for Student Development Jacob Diaz, and Vice President for Finance and Business Affairs Ron Smith. The following questions guided the work of the Committee:

    In what ways do our policies and procedures allow transgender, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming students, faculty, and staff to experience equity, safety, inclusion, and care?

    What steps might we take to create a trans inclusive climate for all members of the SU community?

    The work of the Committee was led by a six-person core planning group comprised of two CITI chairs and four working group chairs. The working groups included a dozen stakeholders whose units were impacted by CITI's charge.
