Campus Pride 2022 Best LGBTQ Colleges

By Charlotte Robinson, August 26, 2022

Campus Pride the preeminent resource for LGBTQ leadership development, diversity inclusion & advocacy within higher education announced their annual Best of the Best Colleges & Universities for LGBTQ students in the United States. The list recognizes the work of 40 campuses that have made their communities safer & more welcoming environments for students, faculty & staff alike. Shane Windmeyer, Campus Pride Executive Director stated, “Campus Pride created the Best of the Best List to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of these colleges & universities, creating safer, more welcoming campuses for LGBTQ+ people. Students, prospective students & their families, along with faculty & staff members, deserve to know whether they will be safe on campus, so they can make the best choices for their own academic success & by creating inclusive, safe environments these colleges are taking responsibility for all students.” The Campus Pride list features 40 four-year campuses from across the country. These campuses have achieved 5 out of 5 stars on the Campus Pride Index (CPI), the definitive national benchmarking tool measuring LGBTQ-friendly policies, programs & practices. To earn a ranking of 5 out of 5 stars, campuses receive a percentage score from 90 to 100 based on their LGBTQ inclusive policies, programs & practices. The methodology to determine this year’s Best of the Best List was based on an overall score of 93 percent or higher. Dr. Genny Beemyn, the coordinator of Campus Pride's Trans Policy Clearinghouse concluded, "We are seeing more & more colleges earn 5 stars because campuses are doing more to support their trans students. While all colleges can & should do more to be trans-inclusive, many institutions are taking important steps forward."
