Wis., Ind. schools make Campus Pride list
Campus Pride has released its list of the top 25 LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities in the United States.
For seven years, the listing has highlighted the most LGBTQ-inclusive colleges and universities when it comes to policy, program and practice in higher education. This is the first year Campus Pride has released a Top 25 list based on the higher LGBTQ benchmarks recently released on the updated version of the Campus Pride Index.
No Illinois school made the list. However, Indiana University-Bloomington and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay are listed. Some of the others on the list include Tufts University, Williams College, Southern Oregon University, Cornell University, The Ohio State University and the University of Louisville.
