Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
We are committed to the University of Kansas being an inclusive community where all feel welcome and able to express themselves without fear of discrimination. This value is a foundational one for our university, and KU’s non-discrimination policy includes prohibitions against discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression among its protections.
We want to reassure you that yesterday’s executive order at the state level does not alter KU’s non-discrimination policy. It also does not alter our commitment to an open, inclusive community that is free from fear and discrimination.
