FAIRBANKS — University of Alaska president Pat Gamble is recommending adding sexual orientation as a protected status under the system’s non-discrimination policies.
Some UA students and employees have lobbied for years to amend the policy to include gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.
The proposed amendment will be considered by regents at their meeting in Anchorage this week.
The change would add “sexual orientation” to a list of other protected categories in the existing non-discrimination policies.
