FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A Four Corners college is set to vote on adding for transgender and gender nonconforming students to its nondiscrimination policy.

The Daily Times of Farmington reports (https://goo.gl/NLq1fS) the board of San Juan College is scheduled Tuesday to vote on updating the school’s Student Non-Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Policy.

Vice President for Administrative Services Ed DesPlas says the new policy would be in line with federal guidelines.

Officials say if approved, the college will provide transgender students equal access to all educational programs, activities and facilities, including restrooms, in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972.

The move comes after Office of Civil Rights in the U.S Department of Education issued a letter to school districts, colleges and universities on transgender students.
