Top 25 LGBT Friendly Colleges

Campus Pride represents the leading national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization for student leaders and campus groups working to create a safer college environment for LGBT students.
The organization is a volunteer-driven network “for” and “by” student leaders.
The primary objective of Campus Pride is to develop necessary resources,
programs and services to support LGBT and ally students on college campuses
across the United States.

The Campus Pride Index is based in research on policy, program and practice and is
conducted “for and by” LGBT experts in the field of higher education.
 Annually campuses update and use the Campus Pride benchmarking tool to improve
LGBT living and learning on campus.   Over 80% of participating
colleges last year improved from their ratings using the index benchmarking

In  order to be in the Top 25 this year, a college had to achieve 5 stars in
Overall, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity/Expression categories.
 Each campus also had to be 4.5 stars or above in the eight LGBT-friendly
factor areas.  The final Top 25 had the highest percentage ratings.
 The final list reflects colleges with student populations from 2500 to
over 25,000, public and private schools alike (in alphabetical order).
