RESOLUTION ENDORSING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF DOMESTIC PARTNER BENEFITS

The University of Texas's failure to offer equitable benefits to all faculty and staff creates an injustice on our campus and hampers our recruitment and retention efforts. The Faculty Council therefore calls for the establishment of domestic partner benefits and for the removal of all impediments—legal and otherwise—to their implementation.
