The Big Ten Student Suicide Study: a 10-year study of suicides on midwestern university campuses.
The Big Ten Student Suicide Study was undertaken from 1980-1990 to determine the suicide rates on Big Ten University campuses to address many of the statistical and epidemiological flaws identified in previous studies of campus student suicides.
Comparing the Risk of Suicide of College Students With Nonstudents
The importance of restricting access to firearms in reducing rates is interpreted as reinforcing the importance of environmental factors in affecting suicide rates, specifically the importance for students aged 18–24 in the smaller student cohort, and for those 18–29 in the more inclusive student cohort.
Acculturative stress and experiential avoidance: relations to depression, suicide, and anxiety symptoms among minority college students
Examination of interactive effects of acculturative stress and experiential avoidance in relation to anxiety and depressive symptoms among minority college students provided empirical evidence of an interaction for suicidal, social anxiety, and anxious arousal symptoms among the studied sample.

Testing the Interpersonal Theory of Suicide in Chronic Pain

Transgender Adults’ Access to College Bathrooms and Housing and the Relationship to Suicidality
Findings from sequential logistic regression indicate that denial of access to either bathrooms or gender-appropriate campus housing had a significant relationship to suicidality, even after controlling for interpersonal victimization.
Acculturative stress, social support, and coping: relations to psychological adjustment among Mexican American college students.
Tests of interaction effects indicated that parental support and active coping buffered the effects of high acculturative stress on anxiety symptoms and depressive symptoms, and peer support moderated the relation between accultuative stress and anxiety symptoms.
