Ithaca College rated five out of five on the Campus Pride Index, and was recognized in Campus Pride’s 2021 Best of the Best list. IC is one of 30 campuses from six regions of the country receiving this recognition, showing a deep commitment to LGBTQ students and earning a perfect score on the definitive national benchmarking tool, the Campus Pride Index.
“At Ithaca College we continue to address barriers to full inclusion of LGBTQ students, and develop strategies to create learning, performance and research environments where LGBTQ students are welcomed, valued and affirmed — not only accepted, but expected as integral, necessary, essential members of our campus community,” said Luca Maurer director of the Center for LGBTQ Education, Outreach and Services.
IC has achieved the highest 5-star Campus Pride Index rating for more than a decade. This designation and the benchmarking tool on which it is based evaluates nearly 100 research-based criteria that support LGBTQ student success, and track LGBTQ-friendly policies, programs, and practices.
