Resources for Trans Students

In addition to our resource guides to the right, trans students can find community support through these campus organizations:

TransAction

MSU’s registered student organization that centers trans and/or nonbinary undergraduate students. TransAction aims to be a resource for trans students at MSUTransAction, and we welcome the beautiful trans community at MSU through serious discussions, light-hearted events, and advocacy work. To meet people and find out when/where our weekly meetings are, please join our Discord! (Alternatively, email us to be put on our email list!) To find out more or connect with an E-Board member anonymously, visit our website and use the "let's chat" function!

 

Transcend 

A campus-wide caucus which seeks to build a sense of community among MSU students who are transgender, nonbinary, and/or gender non-conforming, as well as to defend their rights and advocate for their specific social, educational, and cultural needs. These students often face harassment, hostility, and discrimination in every area of their lives, including when interacting with the university. A supportive network will help combat the transphobia, cissexism, transmisogyny, and isolation that these students frequently experience.

Students can also find online support through these outside resources:
