BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado is considering asking student applicants to disclose their sexual orientation.
The Daily Camera reports that many colleges have already added this question to their applications and CU officials believe it will create a more welcoming environment.

University officials say they are also considering adding the question to better track the Boulder campus’ LGBTQ population. Officials say they do not have a tentative date for when the question may be added.

CU spokesman Ryan Huff says if the change is passed, the question will be voluntary and that the applicant’s answer will not impact their chance at admission.
