LGBTQ

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Demographic Questions

In order to create a safe, welcoming environment for members of the LGBTQ community, Green River students will be asked to answer two new demographic questions as part of the quarterly registration process. Students must select a response for each question and may select "Other" or "Prefer not to answer" should they choose to do so."

These important questions will help Green River understand the unique challenges of its LGBTQ students. Soon, the data collected will be used to develop programs, support services, clubs, courses, scholarships and more - all designed specifically to assist LGBTQ student success.
