Trans Task Force

Trans Task Force Logo


The Trans Task Force is a committee of UCSB students, faculty, staff, and administrators who are committed to making our university more welcoming for trans and nonbinary students. Convened by the Resource Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, the mission of the Trans Task Force is to ensure that UCSB is an inclusive, supportive, and safe place for people of all gender identities and expressions. This task force held its first meeting on January 8, 2014, and has been working to improve campus ever since.

Single Stall Restroom Conversion

In June 2015 the UC Office of the President revised the UC Facilities Manual Resource Directory Chapter 4 Section 1 on Providing Gender Inclusive Facilities to require that a gender inclusive restroom is provided in all new construction and renovation of UC-owned buildings. Additionally, this revision required UC campuses to convert all single-use restrooms to all-gender-inclusive by changing existing signage from gender-specific to all-gender. Two months later, UC Santa Barbara issued the Gender-Inclusive, ADA-Accessible, and Family-Friendly Facilities Policy to comply with the guidelines from the Office of the President. 

In an effort to ensure we are in compliance with the above bylaws we need YOUR help! If you spot, a single-stall restroom on campus without proper all-gender restroom signage, please fill out the form below so that way we can work on getting that signage changed!
