ACHA Endorses Letter Opposing a Proposed Change to the Federal Definition of Gender
On November 29, 2018, the American Council on Education sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services expressing serious concerns about the reported proposal to narrow the legal definition of gender under Title IX as determined solely by someone's genitalia at birth. ACHA was joined by more than 25 other organizations in their support of the statement. View the letter here.

ACHA Reaffirms Its Non-Discrimination Policy
The American College Health Association reaffirms our long-held support for a campus climate guided by the values of cultural inclusion, respect, equality, and equity. ACHA supports federal, state and local governmental policies that reflect these ideals. ACHA rejects all forms of intolerance and discriminatory conduct with respect to the following: age; gender identity, including transgender; marital status; physical size; psychological/physical/learning disability; race/ethnicity; religious, spiritual or cultural identity; sex; sexual orientation; socioeconomic status; or veteran status. Such a climate is essential to ensuring the health and safety of college students, faculty and administrators.
