Harvard Considers Inviting Prospective Students To Self-Identify As LGBT

Following the example set by Elmhurst College, Harvard University may soon invite prospective students to self-identify as LGBT on its admissions forms. The change would send a message that the campus is welcoming of all students and would also help better track how many LGBT students are on campus. Already, the Harvard admissions office invites applicants to express if they have any interest in participating in LGBT student groups.
