Chancellor Bantz Makes Statement Concerning Values of IUPUI within its Community Involvement – November 3rd, 2010
“..For several years, members of the IUPUI community have thoughtfully, but persistently, asked that we reconsider our participation in the UWCI [United Way of Central Indiana] campaign in light of the discriminatory practices of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) with respect to sexual orientation. We have listened carefully to arguments on all sides, but have determined that it is inconsistent with our values for us to—however passively—support the BSA with the pledge procedure we had been using, which allowed donors to “opt out” of having their contributions going to the BSA. Beginning with this year’s campaign, we will conduct IUPUI’s UWCI campaign so that donors must “opt-in” to direct their contributions to the Boy Scouts. The online pledge form now reflects this change in policy.”
