Transgender College Students: An Exploratory Study of Perceptions, Engagement, and Educational Outcomes
Dugan, John P.; Kusel, Michelle L.; Simounet, Dawn M.
Journal of College Student Development, v53 n5 p719-736 Sep-Oct 2012
We explored transgender students' perceptions, engagement, and educational outcomes across 17 dimensions of the collegiate experience. Data were collected as part of a national study and represent a total of 91 transgender-identified college students as well as matching samples of nontransgender LGB and heterosexual peers for comparative purposes. Results suggest some variation within the transgender student population (i.e., male to female, female to male, intersexed) as well as significant differences in perceptions of campus climate and educational outcomes between transgender students and their nontransgender LGB and heterosexual peers. (Contains 5 tables.)
