Student Voices Video

Featuring Highline College students, this video promotes the new fall, 2013 initiative to include LGBTQ demographic questions on registration forms at community and technical colleges in Washington State.


We are committed to promoting a safe and inclusive learning environment for LGBTQ students at Highline College, and in order to do this, we need your help!  Collecting data will allow us to know more about our students and thus, be better prepared to design and develop curricular and co-curricular programs that reflect students' diverse perspectives and experiences. 

We believe the implementation of this new process will serve as a testimony of our commitment to diversity, academic achievement and student success.

Program examples include:

Campus Safe Zones Projects and Training
LGBTQ/Diversity Student Centers
Student, Staff, and Faculty Professional Development
Mentoring for LGBTQ Organizations and Clubs
Course Offerings
Funding and Scholarships

When students register for fall, 2013 classes at Highline, they will see two new questions on the registration form:

 1.  What is your sexual orientation?

  • Bisexual

  • Gay

  • Lesbian

  • Queer

  • Straight/heterosexual

  • Other

  • Prefer not to answer

2.  What is your gender identity?

  • Feminine

  • Masculine

  • Androgynous

  • Gender neutral

  • Transgender

  • Other

  • Prefer not to answer


These questions will be optional; however, we encourage students to provide this confidential information so we can design and implement  programs and services that provide meaningful and rewarding learning opportunities for all students.
