UNC drops term ‘freshman’ in favor of ‘gender inclusive language’


UNC has removed the word “freshman” from official university documents, citing as their reason an attempt to adopt more “gender inclusive language.” We are “committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community. Gender inclusive terms (chair; first year student; etc.) should be used on University Documents, websites and policies,” it continues. (CampusReform.org)
