SF State Joins Boycott of Indiana


San Francisco State University President Leslie E. Wong announced Monday that the university will not use any its fund for students or employees to travel to Indiana.

“I am dismayed, if not extremely disappointed, in the recent legislation signed into law in Indiana,” he said. “It is unconscionable for this great university to spend its resources in a state that attempts to legislate discrimination of any kind.”

“By this note, I am informing the campus community that no San Francisco State University funds from any source — general funds or auxiliary — will be used to support employee or student travel to Indiana,” he continued.

He said that the university is researching similar legislation reputed to be existent in other states to determine further action.

“As a member of the NCAA Division II President’s Council, I will not attend a required meeting of the Council to be held in April in Indianapolis,” said Wong.
