One of North Carolina's most prestigious universities is backing the NCAA boycott


Duke University has expressed support for the NCAA's decision to pull postseason sporting events out of North Carolina, according to a statement by the university.

The NCAA announced Monday that it would relocate seven championship events scheduled in North Carolina because of HB2, the state's " bathroom law " that prevents local governments from passing nondiscrimination ordinances, and bans transgender people from using the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

"We agree with the NCAA's decision," Duke athletics director and vice president Kevin White said in a statement. "Our position has been clear on this matter, which is that this legislation is discriminatory, troubling, and embarrassing."

"We agree with the NCAA's decision. Our position has been clear on this matter, which is that this legislation is discriminatory, troubling and embarrassing. We deplore any efforts to deprive individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, of legal protection and rights. We will always be committed to diversity and inclusion, and applaud any efforts to ensure that those values are protected and enacted at all times, and in all places in the state of North Carolina."
