The Queering Education Research Institute© (QuERI)


Symposium on the Dignity for All Students Act

Monday, December 14, 2015, we will be speaking on the need to better prepare teachers to support LGBTQ students and families with Assembly Member Daniel J. O’Donnell, Assembly Member Deborah J. Glick, and Assembly Member Catherine Nolan. The symposium will occur from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College. The event will discus the implementation of DASA and the critical next steps that we must take to ensure dignity for all students in New York.

QuERI at Hunter College

We are pleased to announce that the Queering Education Research Institute© (QuERI) has relocated for two years, 2014-2016,  to Hunter College, CUNY, in New York City and will be part of the LGBT Social Science and Public Policy Center at Hunter’s Roosevelt House.

QuERI is an independent think-tank, qualitative research and training center dedicated to bridging the gap between research and practice in improving the school experiences of LGBTQ students.  QuERI began in 2006 with the Reduction of Stigma in Schools (RSIS) program—a research-based professional development program aimed at supporting educators in creating more affirming school environments for LGBTQ students and families. It expanded in 2009 to become a research and policy institute. QuERI was founded by Dr. Elizabethe Payne and housed in the Syracuse University School of Education from 2006-2014.  Dr. Payne brought QuERI with her as she relocated to Hunter College to direct the relaunch of the LGBT Social Science and Public Policy Center.

This move has allowed for continued data collection in QuERI’s on-going state-wide research study on the implementation of the Dignity for All Students Act, New York’s LGBT inclusive anti-harassment law, and to continue to work toward effective legislation and policy in support of LGBT students and families in New York schools.
