The showers in the locker rooms in the Ford Fieldhouse at Grand Rapids Community College now have privacy panels, meeting the college’s transgender policy.
GRCC’s Title IX Coordinator Kimberly DeVries said the panels were designed to increase privacy for everyone.
“This is compliant with our transgender equal opportunity policy, which states that we will offer a private area for transgender individuals if they wish to use it, but anyone is certainly welcome to use those private areas,” DeVries said.
Jim Van Dokkumburg, GRCC’s director of facilities said the project cost $37,715.
The four locker rooms associated can be found on the the lower level of the Fieldhouse.
