Discrimination against homosexuals on college campuses
Any school that met either or both of these requirements was placed on the list, which Campus Pride calls a roll of "the absolute worst." Campus Pride spent six months combing over the the Department of Education's database on schools that have requested and received faith-based Title IX waivers, cross-referencing that list with additional research on schools that have policies viewed as hostile to LGBT students.
Increased inclusion at many colleges doesn’t automatically solve everything for LGBT students.We’ve organized these statistics by category to help you get a better idea of what LGBT students go through during their college years.In many cases, the most important thing for LGBT students is how they are included on campus through student groups and other social activities."This list uncovers the religion-based bigotry that is harmful and perpetuated against LGBTQ youth on these campuses.” Texas, California, Missouri, Florida, Oklahoma, and Kentucky all have more than four colleges on the Shame List, Windmeyer said, adding that the South has the highest density of schools on Campus Pride's list.The 102 schools on the list account for roughly 2 percent of the 5,000 colleges and universities in the U. The Human Rights Campaign previously shed some light on the growing number of schools requesting religious exemptions in 2015 with its "Hidden Discrimination" report.
The criterion to be the “absolute worst” campus includes either of the following: 1) Received and/or applied for a Title IX exemption to discriminate against LGBTQ youth and/or 2) Demonstrated past history and track record of anti-LGBTQ actions, programs and practices.
