Rutgers Announces New Tyler Clementi Center

Rutgers University is announcing a center named for the student who killed himself after his roommate used a webcam to see him kissing a man.

Tyler Clementi

The university says the Tyler Clementi Center will build programs to help people transition to college.

It will also offer lectures and training on social media, youth suicide, bullying and other topics.

The center is a collaboration with the Tyler Clementi Foundation, begun by the student’s parents.

The 18-year-old killed himself in September 2010, just weeks into his first year at Rutgers. His death sparked a national conversation about the treatment of young gays.

Roommate Dharun Ravi was convicted last year of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and other counts and served less than a month in jail. He is appealing his conviction.
