About CEI

The College Equality Index has three purposes: first, to create public awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer friendly attributes and their availability in higher education; second, to provide detailed, inclusive information to potential students, staff, and faculty who are looking for a friendly environment; and third, to recognize that LGBTQ students, staff, and faculty are also members of other minority groups and have a vested interest in other diversity program offerings.

For more information on the qualifications for each field please see the field list.
