Before Yale welcomed guests and families to campus for its 315th Commencement, the University published a campus map of all-gender restrooms on the commencement website. This move comes in the midst of national debate over bathroom rights. In the past year, over 100 universities in the nation have taken steps to install gender-neutral bathrooms to provide a more inclusive environment for transgender populations on campuses. Elsewhere, politicians and school leaders are working to divide public bathrooms by gender. For example, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed a bill in March forcing transgender people to use public restrooms that correspond to the sex with which they were born. Yale Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dean Tamar Gendler told the Associated Press that Yale aims to be a leader in the gender-neutral bathroom project. Putting the map at the top of the University’s commencement site is an act of signaling Yale’s commitment to the project, Gendler said.
