Penn State Once Again Recognized Among ‘Best Of The Best’ LGBTQ-Friendly Universities

For the third year in a row, Penn State has been named among the “Best of the Best” LGBTQ-friendly colleges, according to Campus Pride.

Penn State earned the highest available score based on its LGBTQ counseling, support, student life, and campus safety.

“We take a tremendous amount of pride in this distinction as being a welcoming and supportive campus for our sexual and gender-diverse students, faculty, and staff,” Sonya Wilmoth, director of the Penn State Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, said.

There were 40 total schools chosen as the “Best of the Best,” and Penn State was one of nine colleges represented in the mid-Atlantic region.

“Although we have accomplished a great deal, work in these areas will continue as we aspire to meet the needs of an ever-changing student body,” Wilmoth said.
