Purdue LGBTQ Center addresses removal of protections
February 23, 2017

The decision to withdraw protections for trans students in schools opens the door for increased violence, bullying, and harassment. At Purdue the LGBTQ Center has worked hard with many campus partners to build a community of inclusion. It is not perfect, but there are structures in place to maintain the protections targeted by this administration. Students, faculty, and staff are protected under our nondiscrimination and anti-harassment policies which include sexual orientation, gender expression, and gender identity.

Executive Order for ban
January 31, 2017
CAPS would like to express its heartfelt sadness over the recent Executive Order by President Trump banning visa-issuance and/or entry into our country to foreign born people in the identified countries of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia. We stand in support of those students, as well as all students, staff and faculty that are affected by this ban.

In essence the Executive Order lumps all citizens of the identified countries into a potential terrorist category and this is neither just nor right. It is our hope that the decisions that come from the office of the President in the future will be more thoughtful and considerate of freedom, social justice, and equality for all, rather than fear and hate. We encourage Purdue as a community to stand in solidarity for actions that bring about inclusivity on our campus and in the United States and to continue to foster a learning environment that is welcoming, affirming, and safe.
