2015 marks the fourth consecutive year that the University of Minneosta-Twin Cities has been listed as one of the top LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities in the nation.
For seven years, the Campus Pride listing has highlighted the most LGBTQ-inclusive colleges and universities when it comes to policy, program and practice in higher education.
This is the first year Campus Pride has released a Top 25 list based on the higher LGBTQ benchmarks recently released on the updated version of the Campus Pride Index. The Top 25 listing is based on the final responses to the Campus Pride Index, a national benchmarking tool which self-assesses LGBTQ-friendly policies, programs and practices.
In order to be in the Top 25 listing, an institution had to score the highest percentages in the LGBTQ-friendly benchmarks. The listing this year includes colleges with student populations from 1600 to over 50,000, public and private schools alike.
