Trans Trainings & Events

The information on this page is part of the #TransTerps campaign and is especially designed for individuals at UMD who wish to learn more about transgender and gender identity issues through campus events and training or through online trainings. For finding trans community or how to navigate the institution's resources, please go to the trans resources page. For information about good practices that an office or organization can implement, please go to the trans good practices page.
