Our Mission

JE13CampusStock0442 1

The Tyler Clementi Center studies the experiences of students navigating 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. 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 experience for all students in higher education.
