Penn State is Still Gay-Friendly

Though Penn State’s party rankings might have dropped this year, students can still be proud of a consistently high LGBT-friendly campus rating.

Awarded by Campus Pride, the LGBT-friendly Campus Climate Index takes eight factors – including campus safety and health support – into account. Yet again, Penn State received a ranking of five stars, which is the highest rank possible from the CCI.

Penn State offers nine student organizations that focus on LGBTA issues, including one fraternity of of progressive men, including those who are gay and bisexual. The LGBTA Student Resource Center provides discussion groups, resources, and a safe and friendly area for all students.

Penn State also has an advisory group to the president — The Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity. They focus on ensuring that the policies, actions, and environment of Penn State are safe and friendly to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. In addition to the Center, Penn State offers unisex bathrooms and a Sexuality and Gender Studies minor.

Penn State shines through difficult times with distinguished ranking in places that matter. If you are interested in continuing Penn State’s history of acceptance, check out the LGBTA Student Resource Center in 101 Bouke Building.
