Scripps College has begun reevaluating its policy regarding the admission of transgender students. Scripps only accepts cisgender women, but the topic of trans admissions has gained national attention since last August, when Mills College and Mount Holyoke College became the first women's colleges to officially revise their policies to include trans women for admission.
In a message to Scripps College faculty, staff and students, President Lori-Bettison Varga wrote that she is soliciting input "about updating the admissions policy to address gender identity regardless of sex assigned at birth."
However, any decision will be unlikely to affect the coming admission cycle. Scripps Associated Students President Alex Frumkin SC '15 said Sept. 21 at a SAS Executive Board meeting that the Scripps Board of Trustees will not vote on the issue this October, although Frumkin hopes to present on the topic at the meeting.
To give students a chance to weigh in on the topic of trans admission, SAS hosted a BeHeard forum Sept. 23. Frumkin said she recognized a growing call to action from the wider student body.
“This has been an issue that I think has caught on with all sorts of different students on campus," Frumkin said. "It’s something that all Scripps students can come together behind because as a women’s college we do recognize that there is gender oppression in the world. That’s why Scripps was founded.”
