Kansas State University has been ranked No. 7 in Study.com's Top 50 LGBTQ-Friendly Colleges. The list of colleges was formed using data from leading LGBTQ advocacy groups, reports from students and faculty, and a comprehensive range of LGBTQ-inclusive factors.
The ranking notes K-State's student organizations including the Sexuality and Gender Alliance; Out in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; and the Gender Collective. K-State also offers the LGBTQ studies program, LGBTQ career services and inclusivity training programs for all faculty and staff.
"It is always an honor to be recognized for our efforts at K-State to create a community that is safe and affirming for our LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff," said Brandon Haddock, LGBT Resource Center coordinator. "Even in the difficult months that we have not been in person with our students, we have continued to make K-State a more affirming community for our LGBTQ students. Our student organizations especially have worked continuously to engage with community in the virtual realm."
