U. North Dakota Considering Policy That Would House Students According to Gender Identity

“policy has completed its comment period and has been forwarded to the school’s Executive Council for further discussion”

This idea is based on the concept of “gender inclusion” which has to be mandatory and touch every aspect of student life.

Campus Reform reports:

U of North Dakota proposes sweeping ‘gender inclusion’ policy that would house students according to gender ‘identity’

The University of North Dakota is weighing a sweeping policy change that would impose “gender inclusion” mandates on nearly every facet of university life, including housing.

The pending policy document — originated in June and last revised in September — notes that the university prohibits discrimination “on the basis of sex, including gender identity and gender expression.” Therefore, the policy serves as a supplement to the university’s Discrimination and Harassment Policy, as well as its Title IX and Sexual Violence Policy.

University of North Dakota communications director David Dodds told Campus Reform that the policy has completed its comment period and has been forwarded to the school’s Executive Council for further discussion.

The university would allow members to “specify the pronouns and other gendered personal references used to refer to them.” The university would then utilize these references — “except as legally or administratively required.”

For housing, students would therefore be allowed to stay in “housing consistent with their gender identity and expression” — without a requirement that transgender students stay in single-occupancy accommodations.

Campus Reform asked the University of North Dakota whether female students would be able to opt out of rooming with a biologically male student. Dodds said that “UND Housing will continue to work with all students to find living arrangements that are best fit for each student, regardless of reason.”

Aaaaaaaaaand thousands of parents of daughters cross University of North Dakota off their application list.

ND is pretty conservative but gets a lot of out of state/country students; aviation and engineering are a big cross/borders draw, borders on MN and 3 hrs from Winnipeg so this policy would be a draw for some of the out of state/country students.

Even when I was in school 30+ yrs ago the professors were getting nuts; had an Enligh class taught by PhD student who had a feminist perspective and for “opinion” based questions during class discussions would tell us we’d given the wrong answer.

There was also a controversy about the dorms back then, but can’t remember what it was; there were some coed dorms and there was a huge outcry about something that made no difference.

    We had coed dorms back in the ’70s. Being engineers, one of the females took the lid off a round fruitcake tin, glued a circle of white cardboard in it, divided it with three equal spokes, wrote “MEN,” “WOMEN,” and “VACANT” in the spaces, thumbtacked it to the door, and alles kool.

    You could do much the same thing today with a 57 x 57 grid, a box of colored thumbtacks, and a boot mat at the door to catch the accidents that happened when you took to long to arrange the thumbtacks compatibly.

We now know where Eric Cartman is going to college.

Co-ed dorms would solve the problem. But the students can make the dorms co-ed just by “identifying” as various sexes to mix up the dorms. The administrators there are total idiots to raise this question.

I’m glad to see they would use my preferred pronouns, “Your Royal Highness.” That’s much better than the more colloquial “Hey You!”

If someone identifies as gender fluid, do they get a room in every building?
