Borden Morehead signed Defend Diversity at UT-Knoxville: Veto SB1912 2016-04-28 14:50:24 -0500The office of diversity was directly responsible for the quality of discourse in my graduate class. Defunding what is, in all honesty, a small budget already, just points to the ever increasing death rattle of the conservative right struggling to actuate their personal vision on the mass majority.
The Legislature passed SB1912/HB2248 that removes funding from the Office for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Sign this petition that we will deliver to Governor Haslam asking him to veto the bill.2,097 signatures
Governor Haslam, we call on you to veto SB1912/HB2248 and protect the University of Tennessee-Knoxville's Office for Diversity and Inclusion. The office plays a vital role in making the university competitive for the best students, faculty, and staff and it makes campus life welcoming for all. Thank you for considering our views.
