Abstract
According to Forecasting Agencies, Generation Z, who were born from the mid-90’s to 
the early 2000’s are more likely to view gender as a spectrum and identify outside of the male
female binary. Colleges and Universities are beginning to reflect the diversity of gender through 
institutional, social, and curricular resources that are geared transgender and gender non
conforming students (T/GNC). I conduct a document analysis to get a full idea of the resources a 
for T/GNC students on each of the 23 campuses, then I provide background and a holistic 
literature review based off common themes brought up bysT/GNC students from the largest, and 
most diverse  four-year university system  (the California State University). Students report 
feeling unsupported by the larger institution as well as  harassment from peers and faculty. 
Reversely, students reported building connections and going to an on-campus Diversity or Pride 
Center as an epicenter of support.
