Legislation that will strip state funds from the University of Tennessee Knoxville’s (UTK) diversity office is on its way to the governor’s desk after both the House and Senate voted in favor of the bill last week.

The recently passed bill explicitly prevents the school from ever using funds “to promote the use of gender neutral pronouns; to promote or inhibit the celebration of religious holidays; or to fund or support Sex Week.”
