This includes, but is not limited to race or ethnic origin, sex, color, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, and other characteristics. It would also include first generation students, students who have never traveled abroad, students from low income families, students from rural Appalachian communities, and students with a history of overcoming adversity.
