From BestColleges.com: This year our ranking was made in partnership with Campus Pride. It reflects the best options for LGBTQ youth based on inclusivity, academics, and affordability metrics. In addition to our ranking, we also provide practical tips in choosing an LGBTQ-friendly college, and helpful campus life and financial aid resources.
From the website: BEAM’s mission is to remove the barriers that Black people experience getting access to or staying connected with emotional health care and healing. We do this through healing justice based organizing, education, training, grantmaking and advocacy.
