UT-Martin nondiscrimination policy stalls

Look here for the UT-Martin Pacer story. Basically, the move that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the school's nondiscrimination policy, that passed easily in student government, has stalled in the executive committee of the faculty senate. Some of the members say they aren't aware of any problems.

I suppose that they can't remember this hate incident last year on campus in which anti-gay threats were written on the West Tennessee campus sidewalks during the Day of Silence.

The policy change could still come up at the faculty senate meeting on April 22.

Here is a list of colleges and universities that have inclusive nondiscrimination policies.
