Notre Dame President Criticizes NCAA Pulling out of North Carolina, but Professors Disagree

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

Father John Jenkins, who heads Notre Dame, criticized the NCAA for a political stunt in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. That was met with a response by progressive professors:

Jenkins received public criticism from 48 members of a Notre Dame employee group called “The Progressive Faculty/Staff Alliance.”

In their open letter to Jenkins, published in the The Observer campus newspaper, the alliance wrote “we are disheartened that you objected to the NCAA’s decision and chose to make a public statement that privileges the rights and feelings of cisgender, heterosexual people over transgender and gay people.”
