Is Sexual Orientation A College’s Business?

More College Students May Be Asked to Declare Sexual Orientation – interesting piece from the NYT about some colleges and universities that are already asking students to disclose their sexual orientation and even the University of California system considering adding it to their application.

As it relates to college admission, is one’s sexual orientation relevant, important and appropriate to ask?  Is it like asking for a student’s ethnicity? Or first language?  Or place of birth?
