The Campus Pride Sports Index is a vital tool for assisting campus athletic and recreation departments in learning ways to make their programs and schools more safe and accessible for LGBTQ students. The Sports Index is owned and operated by Campus Pride, the leading national nonprofit organization for student leaders and campus groups working to create safer, more LGBTQ-Friendly environments at colleges and universities.
Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride, offers this: “The way to change sports culture is by showcasing positive work being done on LGBTQ issues and providing a roadmap for each campus to become better. The Sports Index will do just that – by assessing national benchmarks annually and providing this free tool to campuses across the country,”
The Sports Index’s goals are to: set forth a national standard of LGBTQ and ally inclusive policies and practices, offer an ongoing measurement tool to improve the accessibility of LGBTQ people in college/university athletics and recreation, and to advocate nationally for further LGBTQ progress by highlighting positive efforts. The Sports Index is supported under the Campus Pride Q Research Institute for Higher Education as well as benefits from strategic partnerships with professional organizations in higher education and related LGBTQ nonprofit organizations.
Colleges and universities can register by having a representative go online to http://www.CampusPrideIndex.org/
