The 2017 2017 Campus Pride Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning-Friendly Campus Climate Index highlights the top college or university in each state that has succeeded in creating an inclusive and educational environment for students who identify as LGBTQ.

Campus Pride works alongside students, faculty, staff, and administrators at more than 1,400 campuses to help support and improve the quality of campus life for LGBTQ people.
