A new research report has been released by UW-Madison faculty Drs. Maurice N. Gattis and Sara L. McKinnon for open community use. “School Experiences of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Students in Wisconsin” addresses knowledge gaps about the unique needs of trans* students, culminating from research that systematically documents the experiences of transgender and gender non-conforming students in Wisconsin.
The report addresses six themes: learning environment, physical facilities, health and wellness, safety, institutional and social support, and acceptance and respect.
The study is the first of its kind in Wisconsin and was supported by the UW School of Medicine and Public Health through the Wisconsin Partnership Program, and in collaboration with GSAFE. Download a free copy of the report
