Spelman community,

We are pleased to announce that Spelman College was today named one of the 2022 Best HBCUs for LGBTQ+ Students by in partnership with Campus Pride, the leading national educational organization for LGBTQ and ally college students, as well as campus groups building future leaders and safer, more LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities.
Some of the variables related to ranking include a nondiscrimination statement inclusive of sexual orientation, LGBTQ+ studies programs and course offerings, ally program and/or SafeZone trainings, and resource center/office responsible for LGBTQ+ student support services. The listing also includes descriptions of unique campus resources that provide support to students of various gender and sexual identities.

Spelman College is joined in this admirable ranking by other prominent, progressive HBCUs dedicated to championing diversity, acceptance, and inclusivity like Howard University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Hampton University, Tuskegee University, and Morehouse College.

As we celebrate this distinction, we are committed to ensuring that Spelman will remain a safe, inclusive learning environment for LGBTQ+ students.
