NODA Statement Addressing the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act

The Indiana Legislature recently passed legislation (SB101) known as the "Religious Freedom Restoration Act” and Indiana Governor Pence has signed into law. NODA Staff and Leadership are concerned with this new law, which we see as a profound act of discrimination. As noted in NODA’s Nondiscrimination/Affirmative Action Statement, NODA believes in "fair and equal treatment in all practices to all persons regardless of race, color, age, marital status, sex, gender identity and/or gender expression, religion, national origin, ancestry, sexual/affectional orientation, disability or veteran status”.

NODA’s 2016 Annual Conference is scheduled in Indianapolis, IN. As we monitor the situation and its impact on the Association and our membership, we will keep the membership informed. Although there are 19 other states that have similar legislation with 10 more states considering passage, NODA is committed to our members and to operating in a manner that consistently reflects our Core Values of community, diversity, integrity, learning, scholarship and service. We remain united with our other Student Affairs Associations in bringing our concerns to the forefront.
