HB2 Repeal

NC State Community:

Today the Governor and North Carolina General Assembly approved a House Bill 2 repeal compromise. I’m pleased to share the following statement on the repeal of HB 2 from UNC President Margaret Spellings.

“This is a good day for the state and a positive step forward—specifically for the students, faculty, and staff of the University of North Carolina—and we applaud our elected officials for the bipartisan manner in which they brokered this compromise. With today’s action and our continuing commitment to equal access and opportunity for all, we have every expectation that, once again, the University will be able to host national athletic events and professional conferences as we have for years.”

– Margaret Spellings

I’d like to thank Governor Cooper, Speaker Moore and President Pro Tem Berger for their leadership, and the entire General Assembly for their bipartisan efforts to reach this compromise.

I’d also like to reiterate NC State’s strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. As stated in the university’s equal opportunity and nondiscrimination policy, all students, faculty and staff are protected from discrimination, regardless of age, color, disability, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or veteran status. We will continue striving daily to ensure an environment where all students, faculty and staff are welcomed, supported and can be successful.

Thank you,

Randy Woodson, Chancellor
