Abstract: The differences in cognitive development between gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer (GLBTQ) and heterosexual college students were investigated. The Learning Environment Preferences questionnaire was used to determine cognitive developmental level as described in the Perry Scheme. The results indicated that GLBTQ students experienced more stress over their sexual orientation than did heterosexuals, that stress over sexual orientation was positively correlated with cognitive development, and that GLBTQ students had a higher cognitive development score than heterosexual students. Understanding differences in students' cognitive development can help colleges to provide the necessary challenge, structure, and support in order to help all students to continue developing throughout their college years.
