Farmington's University of Maine campus, Ithaca College, and the University of California, Los Angeles, are three of the most gay-friendly post-secondary institutions in the United States.
The list, spearheaded by Campus Pride, an advocacy organization for LGBT college students, is topped by 19 universities and colleges with a five-star ranking, the highest since the first list was organized in 2007.
The schools with the top rankings are Carleton College; Humboldt State University; Ithaca College; Oberlin College; Oregon State University; Princeton University; San Diego State University; Syracuse University; Ohio State University; Pennsylvania State University; University of California, Berkeley; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, Riverside; University of Maine, Farmington; University of Oregon; University of Pennsylvania; University of Southern California; University of Vermont; and Washington University in St. Louis.
“Although not all schools earn a five-star ranking, their voluntary presence and participation in the index shows they are committed to ‘coming out’ for their students and creating truly equal and impactful communities of higher learning,” said Shane Windmeyer, Campus Pride executive director.
The full list is available at CampusClimateIndex.org.
