Hello All,


I am conducting my dissertation study about the experiences of trans* faculty affiliated with a U.S. post-secondary institution (trans* is broadly and inclusively defined, I intentionally include faculty who identify as trans*, agender, transgender, transsexual, men and women of transsexual experience, genderqueer, gender non-conforming and/or any other identity that diverges from socially expected genders associated with one's assigned sex at birth). The study examines trans* identities and the academic employment experiences of participants.



This research is determined "exempt" by the Michigan State University IRB Application #i046337; x14-570e and the faculty mentor is Kristen A. Renn.


In order to be eligible to participate you must identify in some way as transgender or trans*, in the broadest and most inclusive sense of those terms, and have worked during the last six months, or currently work, in a faculty/lecturer/academic appointment (tenure track, non-tenure track, or adjunct).

I look forward to your participation in this research. If you have any questions please contact me at or Dr. Kris Renn at


In Struggle,
