RENO, Nev. (AP) - Students at Truckee Meadows Community College have voted to declare their mascot gender-neutral.

The Student Government Association on Wednesday voted to declare Wizard the Lizard gender-neutral after discussing the option with other colleges and universities that are making their mascots more diverse.

Equity and Inclusion Office Specialist YeVonne Allen says making Wizard gender-neutral makes TMCC inclusive and progressive.

The college will now refer to Wizard by name or as “the lizard” or “the mascot” in lieu of using gendered pronouns.
