Ithaca College Receives High Marks from National LGBT-Friendly Campus
Climate Index
Contributed by Estela Santos-Pape on 10/15/07

Ithaca College has received a very favorable rating from a new online tool
that highlights LGBT-friendliness of colleges and universities.

The National LGBT-Friendly Campus Climate Index
( was created in response to the increasing
demand for tools and resources to support campuses in assessing
LGBT-friendly programs, policies, and practices. Ithaca College received
an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on the index; and received a
perfect 5 of 5 stars in five of the eight subcategories evaluated,
including LGBT Counseling and Health, LGBT Campus Safety, and LGBT Student

Every campus listed has participated in a comprehensive self-assessment
process based on more than 50 questions under eight different
LGBT-friendly categories. The index includes a premier campus spotlight as
well as an Honor Roll that highlights campuses scoring a three-star rating
or above.

Each participating campus has a public profile available for viewing, and
a feature that allows visitors to choose an unlimited number of campuses
to compare and request additional information. The index will be very
helpful to prospective students and parents, as well as to participating
institutions which are continuing to take stock of inclusion efforts.
The Center for LGBT Education, Outreach, and Services is delighted that
Ithaca College received such a positive evaluation, and appreciative of
everyone who contributes to our supportive campus environment for all
