WMU ranks 21st on the top 25 list of schools that have a diverse and accepting student body, as well as strong LGBT awareness programs.
Eastern Michigan University, No. 18, and the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, No. 25, are the only other Michigan schools on the list. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford and Tufts universities were the top three schools in the ranking.
Rankings were based on Campus Pride's Campus Climate Index, a leading metric of how inclusive college campuses are of LGBT and Allies, and on surveys to reveal student perceptions of the extent of diversity and degree of acceptance on each campus.
