Transgender students that identify as female will now be considered for enrollment at Mills College, an all-female school in Oakland. Mills is the only single-sex college in the country to have a published policy for transgender applicants. We'll discuss the details of the new policy, and whether it would affect the core identity of the school as a women's college, especially in light of strong campus opposition to going co-ed in the past.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Brad Dacus, constitutional attorney and president of the Pacific Justice Institute, a non-profit legal defense organization
  • Brian O'Rourke, vice president for enrollment management at Mills College
  • Sonj Basha, upcoming senior at Mills College
  • Tess Filbeck-Bates, upcoming senior at Mills College
