Campus PRIDE: How does your school rank? #LGBT #GoGators


campusprideindexWondering how LGBT friendly your current university (or alumni university) is? Well, now you can see how your school rates in comparison to other schools, both locally and nationally.

CampusClimateIndex.org assesses schools on how LGBT-friendly they are, based on eight factors: LGBT policy inclusion, LGBT support and institutional commitment, LGBT academic life, LGBT student life, LGBT housing, LGBT campus safety, LGBT counseling & health, and LGBT recruitment and retention efforts.
