Our Mission

JE13CampusStock0442 1

The Tyler Clementi Center studies 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. 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.
