Harvard Could Add LGBT Option In Admissions

Written by

Harvard University announced Wednesday that it may add language to its admission application that would allow prospective students to identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, according to The Harvard Crimson.

"I think this campus is really welcoming to all students and that's the signal we want to send," dean of admissions and financial aid William R. Fitzsimmons told the Crimson.

Harvard Queer Students and Allies cochair Emma Wang said "it is very refreshing and progressive."

She added that "not only would the change give applicants a more welcoming image, but it would allow the college to keep better track of how many LGBT students apply and how many are accepted."

The final decision will be made in February but already, it is possible for students to participate in LGBT student groups as an extracurricular activity.

Harvard is not the only one to develop this kind of initiative since the university of Elmhurst, near Chicago, will become the first university to be ask about sexual orientation in admission applications which will begin in fall.
