Campus Pride issues list of LGBTQ-friendly colleges

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

The Campus Pride organization released its 2020 “Best of the Best LGBTQ-Friendly Listing of Colleges and Universities” to commemorate National Coming Out Day and LGBTQ History Month. Among the forty universities and colleges are Princeton University, the Ohio State University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Oregon, to name a few.

Campus Pride also pointed out that it has a Campus Pride Index tool which “provides an invaluable benchmarking tool to assess LGBTQ-inclusion efforts from academics, to student life, to housing, to recruitment and retention activities.” The organization bragged that there “are nearly 400 colleges who have ‘come out’ on the index.” Its press release stated that it works with “over 1400” higher education institutions and that sixty percent of their work “is dedicated to working with colleges in the South, Midwest and campuses within more rural communities.”

It looks like institutions of higher learning, particularly public universities, are bending over backwards to cater to LGBTQ activists. Accuracy in Academia, in the past, has highlighted how public institutions have used taxpayer dollars to advance LGBTQ activist agendas while remaining out of public view and lacking public accountability.

Here are the top forty inclusive campuses for the LGBTQ community, separated by geographical region:
