Help make campus safer for trans/nonbinary undergraduates!

The goal of this study is to understand what sexual violence against transgender and nonbinary college undergraduates looks like. Most of the research on sexual assault against college students has been about cisgender women. Trans and nonbinary students have their own stories and unique challenges.

 

Sexual assault prevention has focused on cisgender women, but trans/nonbinary students need their own solutions that addresses the types of assaults they experience. This study will be used to develop the first intervention designed specifically to prevent sexual assault against trans/nonbinary students.

 

The information you provide about your perspectives and/or experiences is valuable and will be used to:

  • Understand what unwanted sexual experiences and sexual assault look like for trans and nonbinary undergraduates

  • Create the first intervention designed to prevent unwanted sexual experiences and sexual assault for trans and nonbinary undergraduates

  • Advocate for better policies to support trans and nonbinary students
