Cornell has been named to the Campus Pride index of the top 25 most LGBT-friendly colleges and universities in the United States.
The rankings are based on data from 339 campuses on LGBT policy inclusion, student life, academic life and other practices.
“Every student deserves to feel safe on campus, and all of these colleges are committed to creating a more LGBT-friendly campus,” Campus Pride Executive Director Shane Windmeyer told the Huffington Post. He also noted the index is “done for and by” LGBT people.
Cornell’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center is at 626 Thurston Ave., 3rd floor.
