Hobsons Partners with Campus Pride to Increase Data Available to High School Students
The Partnership will Provide Data on LGBTQ Friendly Colleges and Universities To Students Searching for their Best-Fit Institution
ARLINGTON, VA - July 12, 2018 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Naviance and Intersect, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Campus Pride to provide valuable data within SuperMatch to better help high school students find their best-fit higher education institutions.
Campus Pride is a national nonprofit organization that works to create a safer college environment for LGBTQ students. Higher education institutions can voluntarily participate in the Campus Pride Index by completing a survey about their campus policies and resources. Currently, over 300 higher education institutions are participating in the Campus Pride Index.
SuperMatch, a college search tool available to Naviance students, has historically included the ability to search for schools that were LGBT friendly. Partnering with Campus Pride will now provide more comprehensive and current information for this search tool.
“With Supermatch, we are helping each student search for schools across the dozens of fit criteria that are most important to them,” said Amy Reitz, General Manager of Intersect by Hobsons. “We are proud to partner with Campus Pride to make it easier for LGBTQ+ students and allies to identify campuses that are inclusive, welcoming, and respectful for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning people.”
Intersect by Hobsons connects with Naviance, the world’s most widely-adopted college and career readiness platform used by 10 million students nationwide, to enable colleges and universities to better identify and connect with high school students actively engaged in the college search process. Intersect also makes it easier to collaborate and create connections with high school counselors to support a successful student journey.
