Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Gender Identity

University College Cork is committed to equality and will aim to provide all staff and students with a positive working and learning environment free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation. The University recognises that there can be differences between physical sex and gender expression and identity. The University will not discriminate against people on the grounds of transgender or gender non-binary expression or identity. Additionally, the University will not discriminate against people on the grounds of any process of gender transition (social, physical, or medical) begun or completed.

This policy does not anticipate every situation that might occur with respect to transgender or non-binary gender staff/students, and the needs of each transgender or non-binary staff member/student must be assessed on a case– by-case basis. UCC’s Gender Identity and Expression Guidelines should also be read as a procedural support in conjunction with this policy.
