Archived Initiatives and Partnerships

The Transgender Spectrum Initiative was a Jesuit Grant Foundation-funded program from the Gender & Sexuality Center at USF. The purpose of the Transgender Spectrum Initiative (TSI), through the Jesuit value of Contemplation in Action, was to invite USF’s transgender, non-binary, gender nonconforming people and the broader community to reflect on and engage in a dialogue about the marginalization and injustice that transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming community members experience on a day to day basis. The focus of these spaces will be solidarity-building and personal and professional development. 

While no longer active, we invite you to view the archived videos and materials from this initiative.
