CHAPEL HILL — The University of North Carolina has given its final OK to a revised student code of conduct that prohibits harassment on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
This ruling covers all of its 16 constituent universities.
According to Equality NC, “Many of the campuses had already adopted individual, LGBT-inclusive policies, but this new policy is comprehensive to the university system. This policy also includes high school programs at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.”
Last year, the School Violence Prevention Act was passed by the State to provide protect all students from bullying.
