Southern Utah University has agreed to amend its anti-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation and gender identity, the Spectrum reported.

The school's board of trustees voted on the issue Friday, agreeing unanimously to protect gay, lesbian and transgender students from discrimination.

The move leaves Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University as the only institutions of higher learning in Utah without such a policy.

“I think it's good that the board of trustees recognized the importance of providing equal protections for students so the campus atmosphere is safe, friendly and accommodating to everyone regardless of their sexual orientation,” Cody Alderson, the school's student body president, told the paper.

Last month, Salt Lake City became the first city in the state to outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in the areas of housing and employment. Lawmakers voted unanimously after the Mormon Church approved the measure.
