The Mason Experience

Mason Celebrates Pride Month

With a 5-star rating from the Campus Pride Index for LGBTQ+-inclusivity, Mason has been recognized for its cultivation of the success and well-being of its queer, trans, non-binary, and questioning students, staff, and faculty. Across this year, our LGBTQ+ Resources Center center saw increased participation in all its major student support programs, including the LGBTQ+ residential Learning Community, the Peer Mentoring Program, and outreach by the Queer Student Leadership Council. To celebrate this year's Pride, our LGBTQ+ Resource Center worked with Mayor of Fairfax and Mason alum Catherine Read to create the first-ever Fairfax Pride celebration on June 3.

Mason ranks highly for LGBTQ+ inclusivity

With its 5-star rating, Mason was recognized as one of only 40 “Best of the Best Campuses" by the Campus Pride Index last year. We are also one of only four institutions nationally to score a perfect 100 on the Athletic Equity Index, which examines how NCAA Division I institutions support LGBTQ student-athletes.
