Gender Identity Inclusion

Intramural Sports 

The Intramural program within Duke Recreation and Physical Education holds the equality and inclusion of its participants in the highest regard. Every participant has the right to an unbiased, fair opportunity to participate. When an activity requires a gender designation such as Women’s or Coed, an individual may participate in accordance with their personal gender identity and expression, regardless of medical treatment or hormone replacement therapy. If an individual wishes to participate in a Coed or Women’s league and does not identify with a particular gender, the Director of Intramural Sports, the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, and the Office of Institutional Equity will provide resources and direction on a case by case basis. In addition, if participants choose to compete in extramural events, cases will be resolved based on applicable National Governing Body Policies. All information regarding student identities and medical information will be kept strictly confidential.

Sport Clubs  

The Sport Clubs program within Duke Recreation and Physical Education holds the equality and inclusion of its participants in the highest regard. Every participant has the right to an unbiased, fair opportunity to participate. Eligibility for Sport Club membership shall be governed by the policies of that sport’s national governing body and Sport Clubs as a whole. In the event there is no policy governing a transgender student’s eligibility, it will be determined by the Club President in consultation with the Director of Sport Clubs, the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, and the Office of Institutional Equity. Results of the consultation will factor in both the student’s current or future eligibility for competition on a team and the student’s wishes for participation on a male or female team. All information regarding student identities and medical information will be kept strictly confidential.
