Indiana University Bloomington has been recognized for being a friendly place for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender) students.
Campus Pride, a national nonprofit that focuses on supporting LGBT students, released a list of Top 50 LGBT-friendly colleges and universities Friday, Aug. 15.
Also appearing on the Top 50 list are Harvard, Brown and Cornell.
The list is based on responses to the Campus Pride Index, a national benchmarking tool which self-assesses LGBT-friendly policies, programs and practices at more than 425 colleges and universities, according to a statement.
A spokesperson for Indiana University said the school first created a GLBT office in 1994 and has offered advice to other schools on how to create a friendly climate, according to a statement from IU Bloomington.
