Private colleges in NC oppose HB2 discrimination

Across the state, a number of private colleges have released statements about how the passing of the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act will impact their campuses. The trend in the statements they provided to the organization Campus Pride is that they are already dedicated to making sure their campuses are inclusive and diverse. Some of the schools already have single-occupancy bathrooms that are universal for all student use. Another impact of the law is that it prevents people from suing in state court if they think they have been discriminated against, whether they are in a protected category or not. As for state colleges, UNC-system President Margaret Spellings has declined to comment on the law, which omits sexual orientation as a class protected from discrimination by private entities.
