LGBT Identity Was Included In Admissions Process Of The University Of Iowa

Written by 

 University of Iowa

 

In August 2011, Elmhurst College made history while becoming the first institution of United States to ask about students’ sexual orientation and gender identity.

This week, another institution made history! In Iowa City, the University of Iowa has decided to include in its admissions process some questions about LGBT identity and this is a first for a public university.

This process will allow in particular to be able to have a better reception of LGBT students and to then develop resources for them.

"LGBTQ students are important members of our campus community, and we want to provide them with an opportunity to identify themselves in order to be connected to resources and to build networking structures," Iowa’s Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice President Georgina Dodge said in a press release. "Asking LGBTQ students to identify themselves demonstrates that we value this aspect of identity just as we value the other categories for which students check boxes."
