13 ISEP Member Institutions Ranked as Best Colleges for LGBTQ Students in the U.S.

June 20, 2019

In honor of National Pride Month in the U.S., The Campus Pride Index has partnered with Best Colleges to release two separate rankings for the Top 25 Best U.S Colleges for LGBTQ Students and The Most LGBTQ Friendly U.S. Institutions in Each State.

As written by Campus Pride, LGBTQ populations have been historically underserved in higher education institutions, both nationally and abroad. “The ranking list offers a guide for prospective LGBTQ students to identify schools that are culturally inclusive, affordable, and closer in proximity to their geographic location. Additionally, the schools featured on the list were personally vetted by Campus Pride using their knowledge of the LGBTQ education landscape.” As we move through National Pride month, we’d like to congratulate the following ISEP Member Institutions on making this list for 2019. We are proud to partner with institutions that have created safe spaces for individuals in the LGBTQ community and are committed to diversity & inclusion. Follow the links below to learn more about the offerings for LGBTQ students at these universities.
