UVM Named to Unigo's Top 10 List of Colleges Supporting the LGBT Student Community

The University of Vermont is listed among the top 10 colleges "where there's pride and no prejudice," a ranking published by top college review website that recognizes campuses providing the best support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.

UVM was also named this year to Campus Pride's top ten list for trans-friendly schools and its top-25 list for LGBT-friendly schools.

Among the programs and initiatives that put UVM on Unigo's list is LGBTQApril, "a time when the campus hosts speakers, movie nights, and theatrical performances that cover the spectrum of the LGBT experience." The accolade also cites UVM's location, Burlington, Vt., as a particularly welcoming place for the LGBT community.
