Trans Support - A guide about Gender Transition at Curtin University

A guide to support the individual and the organisation in addressing the issues that arise when a person chooses to transition at Curtin

Gender Transition Guide is intended to help address the needs and issues that arise when a person chooses to gender transition whilst at Curtin University. It provides practical advice in the light of:

  • the specific needs of the individual who is choosing to transition
  • the reasonable needs of the business
  • any pastoral care considerations of work colleagues or other students.

It is a starting point to build awareness around a topic that may be new to you or those around you, and is aimed at minimising confusion and uncertainty as an individual undergoes their transition journey. 

This guide is for anyone who:

  • may be choosing to gender transition
  • may have supervisory responsibility for a person who is gender transitioning
  • may be supporting the well-being of the person who is transitioning as they work or study at Curtin
  • works within the student or staff support service areas of the University and who may be asked to provide advice and support in light of an individual’s gender transition.
