dc.description.abstract The purpose of this creative project was to create a transgender student workshop to bring awareness to students about issues that transgender students face on a college campus. The workshop will provide education, information, and resources to students who are interesting in learning more about this specific population of students. This creative project will provide readers with background information through the literature review and will provide specific guidelines and information to build their own workshop. The steps of this project were to review related literature on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) cultural issues, college experience, and transgender college student issues. Next, several schools with policies relating to transgender students were researched. Available resources in the Ball State University community and throughout the state were researched as well. Students who attend the workshop and learn about their peers will then have the knowledge to become advocates and allies for transgender students. They can use their knowledge and resources to educate others about the issues transgender students face and show support for their peers. Through education of diverse populations, students can learn from each other to build a stronger community. en_US
