Campus Pride values your participation in the Campus Pride Index (CPI). Since the CPI launch in 2007, it has been rewarding to see so many more campuses creating safer, more welcoming campus climates for LGBTQ people. The Campus Pride Index continues to be an invaluable benchmarking tool for improving LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs and practices.
Campus Pride spends annually $50,000 to keep the Campus Pride Index up-to-date and operational for roughly 900,000 users (mostly prospective students, families, alumni, etc) who visit the site. In 2017, the Campus Pride Index made 96,000+ referrals via the public profile pages. The site is free to public users to find LGBTQ-friendly campuses.
Starting in 2019-20, Campus Pride has an annual institutional membership for campuses to receive the benefits of utilizing the CPI assessment tool for benchmarking and strategic planning. Other benefits include a public profile with LGBTQ highlighted 411, your star rating and targeted marketing to recruit LGBTQ youth across the country. The membership payment form is listed below. Once paid online please allow 1-2 business days for activation. Please let us know if any questions at email@example.com or call 704-277-6710.
Note: You may apply for a fee waiver if the campus cannot afford the annual membership by going here. Campus Pride has limited funds for campuses to annually request a reduced rate membership or fee waiver. These waivers will be prioritized for colleges/universities from less progressive regions of the country and/or types of campuses that historically lack financial resources for LGBTQ people. This waiver will be on a case-by-case basis and awarded annually.
