  • Northeastern, Biogen slam North Carolina’s new anti-LGBT law

    Boston.com - 03/28/2016

    The president of Northeastern University, which operates a satellite campus in North Carolina, expressed “deep concerns” about the state’s hastily-passed law that sharply limits protections for LGBT people.

    “At Northeastern University we believe diversity is a strength to be celebrated, not a source of division,” President Joseph Aoun said in a statement. “Diversity in all its forms—race, gender, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity—enhances the pursuit of knowledge and prepares people to thrive in a pluralistic society. We join with many other organizations in North Carolina, and across the country, in expressing our deep concerns about this new law.”
