who we are

The Tyler Clementi Center is a collaboration between Rutgers University and The Tyler Clementi Foundation. We study the transition experience of students entering higher education, examining the impact of bias, peer aggression and institutional climate on students identifying with one or more stigmatized populations- including LGBTQ and gender non-conforming students, students of color, women, religious and ethnic minorities and other stigmatized identities and/or experiences.

what we do

Through research and scholarship, best practice guidance, practical tools and interventions, the Tyler Clementi Center assists campus professionals in fostering institutional responsiveness and creating an affirming transition experience for all students entering higher education.
