Well, it’s not an SAT standing or an NCAA berth but it’s a rating. “The University of Maryland has been named the seventh best college for LGBTQ students in the 2017 ranking by Campus Pride and Best Colleges,” Jennifer Burroughs writes on the university website. “UMD’s LGBT Equity Center is featured for its campus impact within the ranking.”

“The new ranking combines the Best Colleges academic and affordability metrics and the Campus Pride Index Score, which measures LGBTQ-friendly campus life. Only universities with a 4.5 or 5 star rating, indicating above average performance in all eight of the LGBTQ-inclusive factors on the Campus Pride Index, were considered.”
