The National Student Genderblind Campaign mourns the tragic death of Rutgers undergraduate student, Tyler Clementi. As a grassroots student-led organization leading the way on the campaign for safe housing for all students—we stand with campus communities nationwide working to implement gender-neutral housing and restrooms, LGBT living communities, and anti-discrimination policies inclusive of gender-identity and expression. Since 2005, NSGC has assisted dozens of campuses successfully implement gender-neutral housing—a housing option, which allows students to live with someone they feel safe and comfortable with.
NSGC calls on all college and university administrators to support LGBT students during this difficult time and reach out to discuss ways to make campuses safer and more affirming for transgender, gay, lesbian, queer, and gender non-conforming students.
We encourage students, faculty, administrators, and staff to check out our resources and find ways to bring about safer campus policies.
