Campus Pride serves LGBTQ and ally student leaders and campus organizations in the areas of leadership development, support programs and services to create safer, more inclusive LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities. Campus Pride exists to develop, support and give “voice and action” in building future LGBTQ and ally student leaders. It works to develop student leaders, campus networks, and future actions to create such positive change.

Campus Pride believes strongly in investing in its local community and shaping LGBTQ advocacy locally for youth. Campus Pride core services include: Education Outreach, Leadership Trainings, Advocacy & Policy Support, Youth Mentorship and Multicultural/Diversity Strategic Planning for colleges/universities.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Campus Pride has many program-specific goals in our 2-year strategic plan, but the overall guiding goals of the organization are:
1. Build a brand that continues to be the nationally- recognized, “go-to” source on college and university campus LGBTQ issues
2. Build financial strength and position ourselves for long-term financial success
3. Be strong stewards of the organization and our youth-driven priorities
4. Maintain focus on LGBTQ youth and give LGBTQ youth a “voice.”

Campus Pride’s Board of Directors adopted a two-year strategic plan divided into four focus areas:

The first is to revise the organization’s financial model, inclusive of its development strategy. This includes revising our financial reporting practices, improving access to potential donors and retaining them, and ultimately strengthening the organization’s financial footing.

The second is to strengthen our position as the leader on college student programming for LGBTQIA students and advocates. These goals are focused on growing our 10 signature programs and revising them to reflect current LGBTQIA student needs.

The third is to revise the governance structure of the organization including revisions to the board structure and creating staffing plans.

The final is to build a strong communications plan. We seek to revise some of our communication tools and deepen our penetration of social media outlets.

Campus Pride enjoys several strong capabilities that help us to achieve our mission. The first is our staff, which includes an experienced and well-published Executive Director; a Media-Communication, and Programs Manager; two summer fellows; contracted administrative professionals; and a large volunteer staff. Campus Pride also has a diverse and growing board with members in 8 states as well as an advisory board made up of 20 students, and our governance structure with three permanent operating committees helps to focus on completing our two-year strategic plan.

Campus Pride’s headline programs are certainly one of our strongest capabilities. Camp Pride is currently in its 8th year and continues to grow every year. The Campus Pride Index has grown to over 350 colleges so far, and our college fairs have grown to 6 cities. Plus, many of our other programs, such as Stop The Hate training and QRIHE research that is first-in-its-class, propel Campus Pride into the national spotlight.

Finally, our strategic partnerships with several key organizations and LGBT leaders are very important to our success. Campus Pride is a programmatic partner with the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation and the Matthew Shephard Foundation, and we regularly partner with The Trevor Project and Kognito Interactive for online training. We also offer a speaker’s bureau of 22 acclaimed speakers—and growing—who speak about current LGBT issues and their experience as national LGBT leaders.
