Georgetown to weigh 'gender-blind' undergraduate housing?

Catholic World News - November 17, 2010

America’s oldest Catholic university may consider a “gender-blind’ approach to housing for undergraduates, according to the campus newspaper.

The Hoya, the campus newspaper at Georgetown University, reports that the student senate proposed a careful examination of gender-blind housing, saying that such a policy “could lead to a more accepting atmosphere for LGBTQ students.” An administration official at the Jesuit-run school indicated that he was “open to discussing ideas” on the subject.

    Alums should deny any affiliation with this former Catholic institution. The prophets of old would have a dire warning for this institution and its governing bodies.
