Shane Windmeyer, Cofounder and Executive Director of Campus Pride said: “Campus Pride’s Index is the only one of its kind.”
The index is an electronic resource hosted on the Campus Pride website and it is just one of Campus Pride’s resources designed to help deliver their vision of campuses and a society free of anti-LGBT prejudice, bigotry and hate.
Campus Pride explains that unlike other national LGBT-friendliness rankings for colleges and universities, Campus Pride’s index takes into account answers by students, faculty and staff to highly detailed, comprehensive questions assessing LGBT-friendly policies, programs and practices.
The LGBT friendly colleges guide helps assist the life of many LGBT students through providing a way to measure the climate of the college and how LGBT friendly the college really is.
Similarly, to Stonewall’s Best University Guide, the LGBT friendly colleges online tool was produced in response to the increasing demand for resources to support campuses in assessing LGBT-Friendly policies, programs and practices.
The LGBT friendly colleges index can be accessed via the Campus Pride website. It is supported by the Q Research Institute for Higher Education and an advisory board of national LGBT researchers.
