Faculty Senate adopts resolution opposing House Bill 2

The Faculty Senate of Wake Forest has recently voted to adopt the following resolution relating to House Bill 2 (HB2):

“The Faculty Senate of Wake Forest University opposes North Carolina House Bill 2, enacted on March 23, 2016, which is contrary to our University-wide commitment to diversity and inclusion. The law specifically prevents cities from legally protecting sexual and gender minorities from discrimination, while also preventing transgender people from accessing public restrooms safely. The Senate believes that the bill will negatively affect our current LGBTQ faculty, administrators, staff and students and their friends and family and may negatively affect recruitment of faculty, administrators, staff and students. In addition, as the law prohibits K-12 public schools and publicly-funded universities and colleges in North Carolina from having multi-stall, multi-sex bathrooms, it could jeopardize federal funding for the schools attended by many of our family members, friends and neighbors. Thus, we urge our local government officials to take an active stand against the law, and we urge the North Carolina General Assembly and the Governor to repeal House Bill 2.”

The Faculty Senate represents faculty from the entire University: the undergraduate College, the School of Business, the School of Law, the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Divinity and the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.

The resolution is one of many efforts, including a similar resolution passed by faculty in the undergraduate College last month, to underscore inclusive values at Wake Forest.

Political event to be held on campus March 13

This message was emailed by Communications and External Relations to students, faculty and staff on the evening of March 12:

Former President Bill Clinton is planning to visit the Reynolda Campus tomorrow (March 13) to campaign for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

President Clinton is expected to attend a Get Out the Vote event at 3:45 p.m. on Sunday in the Wake Forest University School of Law Professional Center Library. The event is open to the public; however, space is limited and access is not guaranteed. Doors will open at 3:00 p.m.

The event is organized by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Traffic on and around the Reynolda Campus is expected to be heavy Sunday afternoon. Due to the number of visitors anticipated, the University encourages students, faculty and staff not planning to attend the event to avoid the area around Worrell Professional Center throughout the afternoon.
