Nearly 80 percent of college-aged voters are opposed to Amendment One, and North Carolina college students have made their opposition clear by passing a wave of anti-amendment resolutions over the past several months.
Over the past month, many other schools have adopted anti-amendment resolutions. Guilford College and UNC-Greensboro both passed resolutions against Amendment One the week of Feb. 13, and the following week UNC-Chapel Hill and East Carolina University also passed similar resolutions. Additional resolutions were passed by the student governments of UNC-Asheville, which voted to officially oppose the amendment on Feb. 29, and Salem College, which passed a resolution on March 7. On March 22, UNC-Charlotte* passed an anti-amendment resolution.
NC State University was the first school to pass a resolution on Oct. 19, 2011. A few months later, on Jan. 24, 2012, NC Central University became the second university, and first historically black college and university (HBCU), to pass an anti-Amendment One resolution.
The total count of university student governments opposing Amendment One is now up to 10, with many other universities around the state still considering adopting their own resolutions.
