Transsexual students and alumni

Rachæl Loader made this Official Information request to University of Canterbury

The request was successful.

From: Rachæl Loader

Dear University of Canterbury,

The following questions are submitted in accordance with the official information act.

(1) What policies and procedures does the university have in effect with regard to transsexual students and alumni wishing to update name, and where applicable, gender, on university records? This includes, but is not limited to, transcripts, degree certificates, and responses to employer verification requests.

(2) What policies and procedures does the university have to ensure that transsexual students have equal access to all university facilities? The most obvious concern in this regard is university-affiliated residential facilities, which are often gender-segregated, and may involve uncomfortable room-mate assignments.

With regard to OIA 12(1), I am a New Zealand citizen, resident in New Zealand.

Yours faithfully,

Rachæl Loader
