Biola University is working to create a policy regarding transgender individuals, as current university literature on sexuality does not reference those who identify themselves as the opposite gender.

While the actual release date of the new policy is undetermined, the aim is to have it ready by fall 2013 for the online student handbook, said Danny Paschall, dean of students.

As Biola updates their policies on sexuality to include gender identity issues, California Baptist University, a fellow member of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, is currently being sued by a former transgender student for wrongful expulsion.
