For Campus Officials Only
THE CAMPUS PRIDE INDEX PROVIDES A CRITICAL FOUNDATION OF UNDERSTANDING AS WELL AS A VITAL TOOL FOR ASSISTING COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN ONGOING EFFORTS TO IMPROVE THEIR LGBTQ CAMPUS LIFE AND ULTIMATELY SHAPE THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE TO BE MORE INCLUSIVE, WELCOMING AND RESPECTFUL OF LGBTQ AND ALLY PEOPLE.
The index is owned and operated by Campus Pride, the leading national nonprofit organization for student leaders and campus groups working to create safer, more LGBTQ-friendly learning environments at colleges and universities. The index is supported under the Campus Pride Q Research Institute for Higher Education as well as benefits from strategic partnerships with professional organizations in higher education, sports associations and related LGBTQ nonprofit organizations.
If you have already completed the Campus Pride Index, you may view your confidential report, update your profile and, or add photos/other content to become a Premier Campus. Annually campuses may update their information. Simply log into your personal campus Dashboard.
How to Get Listed?
Easy as 1, 2, 3!
Step One: Create an Account
Any campus official representing the college/university may take the online assessment. More than one campus official can create an account. The individual(s) should be knowledgeable of LGBTQ issues and, or able to represent the campus in a professional capacity.
Step Two: Take Assessment
Once the account is approved, the campus official(s) first must complete the basic campus profile. Then you will be able to download the Campus Pride Index questions to review. It is the responsibility of the campus official(s) to manage the completion of the index tool consisting of 50+ self-assessment questions, which correspond to eight different LGBTQ-Friendly factors. Half of the questions deal with sexual orientation and the other half with gender identity and expression. Campus Pride encourages a team approach in completing the assessment tool (including students, faculty, staff, administrators). Remember that you can save your responses and return to complete the index as many times necessary at your convenience.
Step Three: Review Results
The campus official receives a confidential report of the index tool responses along with results and recommendations. Public users may search a basic campus profile with limited results once both the sexual orientation and gender identity/expression sections have been completed; however, a campus may also opt out of sharing information online.
Do you want to preview the Campus Pride Index questions? First, create an account and then you will be able to download the questions after completing the basic campus profile. You will have plenty of time to do so prior to taking the assessment tool. Thank you.
