Gay by Degree from Stonewall

By Thursday 19 August 2010Education, Gay, The Web

Gay by Degree is a website that has been developed by gay rights charity Stonewall. Initially when I heard about it, I wasn’t sure what to think. But when I looked at it I was impressed with the idea and how it has materialised.

Basically Stonewall has rated each University on it’s level of gay friendliness. They’ve done this by checking if the universities have the following:

•A Stonewall Diversity Champion
• A policy that protects lesbian, gay and bisexual students from bullying
• Compulsory staff training on lesbian, gay and bisexual issues
• Lesbian, gay and bisexual staff network
• Student lesbian, gay and bisexual society
• Info for students on lesbian, gay and bisexual issues
• Events for lesbian, gay and bisexual students
• Explicit Welfare Provision for lesbian, gay and bisexual students
• Consultation with lesbian, gay and bisexual students
• Specific Career Advice for lesbian, gay and bisexual students

I am proud to say that the University were I study (see Back to University) the University of Central Lancashire got 9 out of 10.

    Checked this out, Salford is way up there. Although their LGBT society is a little less than impressive.

    Yes it doesn’t rate the quality of the criteria, simply if it has them or not.

    I think Lancashire’s been good for a while coz it benefits from Manchester being so close with all the good vibes from the Village and stuff, don’t it meduck?

    Anyway – there fair good folk – if you forgive the lack of hills.

    Are you ‘out’ at Uni?

  • Antony says:
