quote of the day

As a national university, we'd like to offer an education without discrimination. If there will be more universities that accept transgender women moving forward, we'd like to offer the necessary information as a precedent. We hope this then leads to a society where the admission of trans students is so natural that it isn't even singled out as a topic.
