Campus Climate Index
"Every student has the right to a safe learning
environment where they can learn, live and grow academically and
socially. As a result, campuses have the power and responsibility to
enact policies, programs and practices that work to enhance the campus
pride for all students -- including LGBT and Ally students."(Quote Campus Pride Index Philosophy)
