LGBTQ+ (In)Visibility: A Case for Strategic Enrollment Management

Virtual Engagement Events Student Success Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Division Enrollment Management Gender and Sexuality Orientation, Transition and Retention

The United States continues to experience a volatile political climate, and the LGBTQIA+ community finds itself consistently in the crosshairs of ideologues, warring politicians, and institutions of higher education either unable or unwilling to do what is necessary to ensure LGBTQIA+ student success, inclusion, and safety (Castrellón, Rivarola, & Lopez, 2017; Gardner, 2017; Reichman, 2018). While the integration of strategic enrollment management throughout the admissions process all but guarantees a more nuanced, intentional approach to student recruitment, retention, and persistence, LGBTQIA+ students are largely left out of the equation (Hossler & Bontrager, 2015; Quaye & Harper, 2015). Generalizing with national estimates, the LGBTQIA+ student population would represent the largest underrepresented population on most campuses; however, the act of identifying LGBTQIA+ students is complicated, and not without potential pitfalls that threaten student privacy and safety. Moving forward with LGBTQIA+ inclusion in strategic enrollment management efforts requires specific consideration and care.
