The announcement, which was signed by rector Associate Professor Kesinee Vitoonchart, said the new rule applies to students when in a classroom, taking an exam, undergoing training, contacting university officials and attending ceremonies, including graduation. They must, however, follow the university’s gender relevant dress code.
All university staff must treat transgender students by recognising their human dignity, liberty and gender equality, it advised. Insulting, discriminating, bullying or intimidating transgender students, or students who dress according to their gender identity, will be regarded as violations of discipline.
The new rule comes into effect from today (June 9).
Thammasat has a main campus in Bangkok’s Phra Nakhon District, an urban campus in Pathum Thani’s Rangsit District and rural campuses in Chon Buri and Lampang.
