INDIANAPOLIS — Four small, private, religious colleges in Indiana have found themselves on the ‘worst’ list from a national LGBTQ group.
Campus Pride this week released its list of schools that it says discriminate or make learning unsafe for gay students. Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Taylor University in Upland, Bethel University in Mishawaka, and the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne all made the list.
There are no accusations of any actual, physical violence at the schools.
According to Campus Pride, the colleges and universities included in this year’s list have either received or applied for a religious exemption to Title IX (which is designed to fight discrimination), or they have a “demonstrated history of anti-LGBTQ policies, programs, and practices.”
