Welcome to the home page of the National Study of LGBTQ Student Success. We are a team of researchers interested in examining the personal and environmental factors that contribute to academic, social, and personal success for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer-identified college and university students in the United States. In 2013, we have collected data for the first phase of our mixed-methods study of LGBTQ student success. We are currently conducting a longitudinal qualitative project on the First Year experience of LGBTQ college students.

Join our Symposium, Oct. 18 2014!

Next Fall we will be hosting the National Symposium on LGBTQ Research in Higher Education. Participants will be able to attend virtually or on site at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. We will provide space for sharing of research as well as engaging, supportive, and collaborative dialogue for scholars from all fields. Please save the date and follow us on Twitter and sign up for our email list to stay updated!

Also, please share with us what you would like to see, learn, and take away from our October Symposium by completing a short survey found here.
