In 2017, the Tyler Clementi Center partnered with the Center for Postsecondary Research at Indiana University, the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, the SERU-AAU Consortium led by UC-Berkeley and U-MN, the American College Health Association, and Rankin & Associates on a study of queer-spectrum and trans-spectrum student experiences in higher education.
We reviewed the queer-spectrum and trans-spectrum student responses on the National Survey of Student Engagement (2017), the Undergraduate Student Experience at the Research University Survey (2016), the American College Health Association-National College Health Assessment (2016), and the four surveys conducted by the Higher Education Research Institute, including The Freshman Survey (2016), the Your First College Year Survey (2016), the Diverse Learning Environments Survey (2016), and the College Senior Survey (2017). Combined, these analyses included the responses of 66,208 queer-spectrum students and 6,607 trans-spectrum student at 918 unique 4-year institutions across the U.S.— the largest study of this population ever undertaken.

Bullying doesn’t end when you graduate from high school.
For many people, bullying continues into college and adult life. Tyler’s story happened in just the first 3 weeks of college, so it’s known that bullying can happen at any age. Bullying also goes hand in hand with hazing and sexual violence so its important to tackle bullying head on in a college setting.
The #Day1 Campaign gives people at a college/university level the information they need to be aware of bullying and take actions within their own lives to put an end to it. Many people face new challenges when they are in college and its easy to lose humanity within the craziness- but thats why its so important for all of us to learn how to be an Upstander on our campuses and in our communities.
