On July 8, 2009, the University of Minnesota officially revised its equal opportunity statement to include "gender identity and gender expression."
Recent changes to the equal opportunity statement are the result of hard work and collaboration by numerous transgender activists and allies on campus, including the Transgender Commission and the GLBT Programs Office.
The new equal opportunity statement reads, "The University of Minnesota shall provide equal access to and opportunity in its programs, facilities, and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression."
