Description

The problem this project addresses is the sense of marginalization experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual (LGB) and same-sex attracted (SSA) Christian college and university students. Data was collected via an online questionnaire and the study design mixed methods with an emphasis on the qualitative data. The study sample included eighty students/alumni from thirty-two Christian colleges/universities. Generally, respondents felt lonely, hid their sexuality, and reported a negative campus climate. Recommendations from respondents include: institutional policies must be clearer and applied consistently, improve campus climate, and form support groups for LGB and SSA students. FOR BACK COVER: ""This is the book to read on Christian faith and sexual identity at Christian colleges. Giving a Voice to the Voiceless is a book for every campus constituency from students to presidents, administrators, alumni, faculty, parents, trustees, donors and more!"" --Leith Anderson, President of National Association of Evangelicals ""Christopher Yuan's wise and practical recommendations--firmly rooted in a faithful biblical ethic for human sexuality--will help campus leaders care for all of their students with truth and grace."" --Philip Ryken, President, Wheaton College ""Giving a Voice to the Voiceless is an invaluable study of the experiences of college students who struggle with same-sex attraction...This book is a healing balm for these students and will edify, equip, and encourage. It is a must-read book for every college administrator."" --Rosaria Butterfield, Author; Speaker ""For anyone who wants to understand better the experiences of students grappling with issues of sexual identity at Christian institutions, this book should be required reading."" --D. Michael Lindsay, President, Gordon College ""Solidly biblical, relentlessly compassionate, and appropriately practical this book will be noted far and wide."" --Joseph M. Stowell III, President, Cornerstone University ""I strongly urge college presidents, administrators, and trustees to read, digest, and incorporate this important material."" --J. Paul Nyquist, President, Moody Bible Institute FOR INSIDE PAGES: ""Fascinating. With candor and compassion, Christopher Yuan combines personal history, impressive research, biblical insights and practical recommendations to sexuality on the campuses of Christian colleges and universities. This is the book to read on Christian faith and sexual identity at Christian colleges. Giving a Voice to the Voiceless is a book for every campus constituency from students to presidents, administrators, alumni, faculty, parents, trustees, donors and more!"" --Leith Anderson, President, National Association of Evangelicals ""Christopher Yuan has done careful research on the experience of students who navigate their same sex attraction or orientation at Christian colleges and universities. His wise and practical recommendations--firmly rooted in a faithful biblical ethic for human sexuality--will help campus leaders care for all of their students with truth and grace."" --Philip Ryken, President, Wheaton College ""Giving a Voice to the Voiceless is an invaluable study of the experiences of college students who struggle with same-sex attraction on well-meaning Christian college campuses. Indeed the glossary alone is worth the price of the book. Faithful, biblical students who hold to a traditional view of sexuality and who struggle with SSA are even more voiceless today than they were years ago, as the rise of LGBT rights on college campuses does not speak for faithful Christians or reflect the complex emotions and challenges that students face. This book is a healing balm for these students and will edify, equip, and encourage. It is a must-read book for every college administrator."" --Rosaria Butterfield, Author; Speaker ""Based on a pioneering study, this book provides relevant insights and counsel for Christian colleges and universities seek
