Salem College, North Carolina (USA)
An undergraduate at all-female Salem College wants to remain on campus after transitioning to become a man. In response to the request of one person who no longer identifies as a Woman or Female, college officials at the all-female, Woman-focused institution are considering creating a policy on transgender students.
Michelle Melton, a college spokeswoman, declined to identify the student, citing federal educational privacy laws and Salem’s privacy policies.
Annie Webb, a 2005 Salem graduate, sent an email to fellow alumnae expressing the legitimate concern that if the transgender student is allowed to remain at Salem College, the trustees might convert the college into a coed institution.
