Affirming Support for Trans* Students
CSU Health Network will continue to support the rights of our transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and intersex students. Proposed federal changes to Title IX will not impact services provided by CSU Health Network or services covered by the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Policy (SHIP).
