Portland State University
is one of the Top 25 "LGBT-Friendly Colleges and Universities,” according to the Huffington Post
. The study was done by Campus Pride
, a national organization working to make campuses more inclusive. The survey includes such criteria as LGBT Academic Life, LGBT Counseling and Health
and LGBT Policy Inclusion
“Campus Pride intends for the the index questionnaire to be more than just a ranking system, but also a guide for universities and colleges that want to make institutional changes in order to make their campuses safer spaces for LGBT students,” the article says.
When it comes to state schools, PSU isn't alone. Southern Oregon University
in Ashland and the University of Oregon
in Eugene also made the list.
