Welcome to the Campus Pride Sports Index

Campus Pride has expanded its strategic research and outreach efforts to address LGBTQ safety and inclusion in college and university sports by creating the Campus Pride Sports Index. The standardized tool is the only one of its kind for the national collegiate level, focused on LGBTQ inclusion in college sports.

The Campus Pride Sports Index provides a critical foundation of understanding as well as a vital tool for assisting colleges and universities in ongoing efforts to improve intercollegiate athletics and collegiate recreation for LGBTQ players, coaches, participants, staff and fans. The Campus Pride Sports Index sets a national standard of LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs and practices in sports. The index also provides a ground-breaking benchmarking tool that will enable campus leaders and members of college sports to evaluate LGBTQ-friendly sports environments.
