UNC drops term 'freshman' in favor of 'gender-inclusive' language
Do you consider the term "freshman" offensive?
In case you did, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is going to replace the term along with other "non-gender inclusive" terms as part of an effort "to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community," according to reports by CampusReform.org.
A statement given to the website reads: "Consistent with that commitment, gender inclusive terms (chair; first year student; upper-level student, etc.) should be used on University Documents, websites and policies."
