UNC President Margaret Spellings has offered the following statement on the repeal of HB 2:

“This is a good day for the state and a positive step forward — specifically for the students, faculty and staff of the University of North Carolina — and we applaud our elected officials for the bipartisan manner in which they brokered this compromise. With today’s action and our continuing commitment to equal access and opportunity for all, we have every expectation that, once again, the University will be able to host national athletic events and professional conferences as we have for years.”
