"Tolerance"

Anonymous

Before I started working at CLU, I knew very little about the university. I had two friends who worked here who were out and in a relationship.
"Still," I thought, "This is a Christian university. How tolerant can it be towards gay people like myself?"

At the time this was a big concern for me. I had only been out for less than a year at this time and felt that I couldn't be who I was at my previous employer. My friends convinced me to get over the stereotypes I had about all Christian institutions being closed-minded and I applied for a position here.

I got that position and have found an open, supportive, educational home in CLU for over 9 years now. I have always felt welcome here, and as a result I look at people of faith in a different way. Because of CLU I also continue to learn and grow as a human being.
