Abstract

George Fox University is a small, private Quaker university in Newberg, Oregon, just southwest of Portland. In the fall of 2013, a transgender student, named only as Jaycen to protect his identity, was denied housing consistent with his gender identity as a man. Jaycen had requested to live on campus with a group of male friends and had obtained a male gender marker on his identification. George Fox University refused, in accordance with their policy on preventing unwed students of different genders from living together, and offered Jaycen a choice between a single apartment on campus and living off campus. (“Students Identifying as Transgender,” n.d.)
