These 10 religious universities earn high marks for LGBTQ inclusivity
On last night's episode of Queer News Tonight, we reported briefly on the Campus Pride "Best of the Best" report of the top 30 most LGBTQ+ friendly Colleges and Universities in the US, who all ranked a perfect "5" on their ranking system. Now NBC News is reporting on the 10 religious schools that Campus Pride recognized for “living up to LGBTQ-inclusive values.” Some religious institutions in the 2021 list did score a perfect 5 on the Campus Pride Index: Minneapolis’ Augsburg University, affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church; Guilford College, a Quaker school in Greensboro, North Carolina; and Virginia Wesleyan University, historically affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Emory University in Atlanta and Willamette University in Salem, Oregon — both affiliated with the United Methodist Church — each earned a 4.5. Others had slightly more modest grades: Jesuit Catholic schools Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles; Southern Methodist University in Dallas and Lebanon Valley College, a Methodist school in central Pennsylvania, all earned a 4.
