The Changing Nature of Gender in the 21st Century: How Trans and Nonbinary Students Applying to College Today Self-Identify
The last decade has seen a generational shift in how gender is lived and viewed. Refuting the common assumption that gender can be reduced to female and male, many members of Gen Z identify as nonbinary and use pronouns other than “he/him” or “she/her.” This report analyzed data from the Common App, the online admissions form used by more than 1,000 colleges and universities in the U.S., to consider how college students today are identifying their gender and pronouns. More than 1.22 million students filled out the Common App to attend college in Fall 2022, and this was the first year that the form gave students the option to indicate their gender and pronouns.
