The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law has published a report that found that LGBTQ students in higher education face higher rates of discrimination and mental illness when compared to non-LGBTQ students. The report used data from the Access to Higher Education survey, a national survey of both undergraduate and graduate students ages 18 to 40. The researchers found that 32.6% of LGBTQ students in college face some form of bullying or discrimination while only 18.9% of their non-LGBTQ peers experience this same form of harassment.
