New report published about understanding lesbian, gay bisexual and trans perspecives with Higher Education

A new report has been published about understanding LGBT perspectives on, and experiences of, higher education.  The report was written by Eleanor Formby, a Senior Research Fellow in the Centre, and can be found on menu bar (or under reports).

Eleanor notes that there was a lack of UK evidence exploring lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) perspectives within, and about, higher education. The #FreshersToFinals project was undertaken to address this gap. The project consisted of two elements: a literature review, followed by a small consultation with LGBT+ students, young people and staff members working with them. Seven overarching themes were identified in the data, and are explored in the final report.

The report was launched at a one-day conference entitled Supporting LGBTQ students at university at Sheffield Hallam University on Friday 24th July 2015.
