It is a bit crazy that they would put it on the main enrollment form. Whatever happened to a separate sheet of paper (optional and/or anonymous) to monitor for equality?? I can see how the college needs to know these stats (for monitoring of equal opportunities) but do they really need to know this about students... I imagine it would be like.. oh this student is upset/not doing well... must be because... just hope that isn't their student welfare or bullying policy
