This most recent ban is an example of how politics continue to affect institutional resources and policies, often at the detriment of students. The Daily Tarheel reported that, “Before the board’s decision, an N.C. Senate bill in April sought to ban gender-neutral housing at UNC-system schools, and legislators discussed a provision in an N.C. Senate budget proposal to eliminate UNC-Chapel Hill’s program.”

LGBT resource professionals recognize that offering gender-inclusive housing provides all individuals the empowering option to choose whom they live with and can be invaluable to individuals for a number of reasons.  The Consortium stands in solidarity with the brave students, staff, and faculty who continue to fight for safer housing across the UNC system.

Shared Vision and Mission Statement
