University statement regarding May 13 federal guidelines for Title IX compliance

The Ohio State University follows the current federal guidance. Members of the university community may choose to use the facility that corresponds with their gender identity, and Ohio State is committed to providing both individual-user, gender-neutral facilities and supporting individuals’ use of the facility that corresponds to their gender identity.

The university is aware of the additional guidance issued today and will review it to determine if additional action is needed. Ohio State consistently works to ensure the rights and inclusiveness of our very diverse population, as evidenced by our recent ranking by College Choice as a top LGBT Friendly University – http://www.collegechoice.net/rankings/50-best-lgbt-friendly-colleges-and-universities/.

Ohio State is committed to providing a physical environment where our students, faculty, staff and visitors can live, learn, teach, research and be successful in their daily business.
