Abstract or Summary
  • This qualitative study explored the experiences of transgender students at a large, public university. The focus of this study was to identify where transgender students found support systems and obstacles at Rivera University. Six students, who self-identified as transgender, participated in one-on-one semi-structured interviews directed by three research questions: (a) How do transgender students build trust in a campus environment? (b) Where do transgender students find allies and support systems on campuses? (c) What obstacles do transgender students experience while persisting at the university? The primary findings of this study are (a) transgender students do find support, although not in universal or necessarily expected locations; (b) transgender students that are comfortable in their college environment still face huge obstacles to persist in college; and (c) society, as a whole, is ignorant to the needs of transgender individuals.
