Why are we collecting this information?

Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity:  The primary purpose for collecting sexual orientation and gender identity information is to ensure inclusivity and success for all students in our system. It is imperative, and a system goal, to provide safe places for all students to be affirmed in their identity and learn in an environment free from harassment and discrimination. In addition, this data will assist local colleges in providing services and creating programs and curriculum designed to support student success within the LGBTQIA+ community.

This is a great option for our students. Any chance faculty and staff can have this option on ctcLink as well? Thanks!

These options are available to staff through the Employee Self Service tiles.
