This is supposedly meant to help professors identify students in ways that won't accidentally offend the students.

Daily Caller's, Republican Religious Freedom Hypocrisy

Trump-era conservatives are only interested in propping up their religious beliefs without regard for how they impact others' lives. They have no concern for the rights of all citizens. They are not leading an intellectual movement, but rather a movement for their ethno religious politics.
