The University of Alaska Southeast has made a list including it as “one of the 2017 Top LGBTQ-Friendly Online Schools in the nation,” according to a release from SR Education Group, an education research publisher.
“To develop this list,” says an email from representative Taitum Ridgway, “we employed data from Campus Pride, a national nonprofit that worked with researchers to generate standards and tools for assessing LGBTQ-friendly policies, programs, and practices at higher education institutions.”
UAS scored a 3.5 out of 5 on the “Pride Index.” Schools were not ranked amongst themselves, but only schools with a score of three or higher made the list.
