University of Utah receives accolades for queer inclusiveness
The queer-friendly University of Utah was recognized for its progressive and inclusive policies for students and was named as one of the top 25 most lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender schools in the nation. The University joins 24 other elite colleges, including University of California Berkley, Stanford University and University of California Los Angeles as some of the most progressive as rated by Huffpost Gay Voices and the Campus Pride Index.
More than 330 colleges and universities were ranked by inclusion, health, safety, nondiscrimination policies and various other factors.
“Praise and accolades are deserved for these top 25 colleges and universities,” Campus Pride executive director Shane Windmeyer said. “Every student deserves to feel safe on campus, and all of these colleges are committed to creating a more LGBT-friendly campus.”
The UofU received high or perfect ratings in every measured category and it was the first time a Utah University has been included in the top 25.
