Purdue’s LGBTQ Center excels in rating
Purdue received 5 out of 5 stars in the latest Campus Pride Index rating, based on categories affecting LGBTQ students, staff and faculty. Categories include LGBTQ policy inclusion, support and institutional commitment, academic life, student life, housing, campus safety, counseling and health, and recruitment and retention efforts.
“The campus climate index is a national tool that students, staff and faculty may use when considering a university,” said Lowell Kane, Director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Center. “The strong rating is a critical achievement for recruitment and retention. It positions Purdue among the elite universities in the nation when it comes to best practices around LGBTQ inclusion.”
The Campus Pride Index is a voluntary assessment tool that universities can use to identify strengths and gaps in supporting LGBTQIA+ inclusion. Purdue received a score of 4 out of 5 stars in 2014.
