An alarming new report from Temple University and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab reveals that transgender, non-binary and gender expansive students are more likely to face food and housing insecurity, as well as homelessness, at rates significantly higher than their cisgender peers.
The findings of “Hungry to Learn: Addressing Food & Housing Insecurity Among Undergraduates” are based on a survey of 43,000 students at 66 institutions in 20 states and the District of Columbia. It includes more than 20,000 students at 35 four-year colleges and universities, as well as students at community colleges.
