Expanded options now available for gender declaration

- University of Victoria

Starting this fall, UVic is offering expanded gender declaration options to all students and employees through Banner, UVic’s primary information system. Rather than being restricted to one gender field (female/male/not available), UVic community members can now update their gender identity (man/non-binary/woman/prefer not to answer) and gender expression (cisgender/transgender/prefer not to answer).

Being able to report on the gender composition of students and employees can be useful in campus planning and policy decisions, and in advocating for our community. Having expanded data will be useful in developing priorities where UVic needs to better integrate gender and diversity-inclusive approaches to programs and services.
