Best LGBTQ Friendly Campuses Top 30

By Charlotte Robinson, August 26, 2023

Campus Pride has released its annual Best of the Best list of the top 30 colleges & universities for LGBTQ students. The annual ranking recognizes campuses across the country for their LGBTQ friendly policies, programs & practices. The Top 30 recognizes these institutions’ efforts to create safe & welcoming campuses for LGBTQ students, staff & faculty. Shane Mendez Windmeyer, Campus Pride Founder, CEO & Executive Director stated, “The Best of the Best list was first created in 2009 as a way to showcase colleges & universities that were committed to offering safe & inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ students, so that students & families could make informed choices about where to pursue higher education. In today’s climate, which finds LGBTQ+ identities being used as political talking points & laws being weaponized against LGBTQ+ people, the commitment to creating campuses that welcome and protect LGBTQ+ students cannot be taken for granted. The colleges & universities that made our list this year deserve this highest recognition for the efforts they have made and continue to make.” Due to the passage of anti-LGBTQ state laws in Texas & Florida Campus Pride excluded from consideration all colleges & universities from both states in the 2023 Best of the Best list. Windmeyer concluded, “It is important that prospective students & families know that these Texas & Florida laws endanger & harm LGBTQ+ people & create a hostile & unwelcoming learning environment before going to school there.” Since 2001 Campus Pride has been the leading national organization dedicated to building future LGBTQ & ally leaders creating safer communities at colleges & universities.
