FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL: Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana is back tracking on its decision to allow men who identify as transgender women to enroll in the formerly all-female institution.

The Daily Signal reported in November that Saint Mary’s College would allow men who identify as women to enroll at the college in the fall of 2024. That news was first reported by the Notre Dame student newspaper, The Observer.

In an email obtained by The Daily Signal on Thursday, President Katie Conboy addressed the outcry from both their community and alumnae since the decision.

“This has weighed heavily on our minds and in our hearts,” she said in the email, sent around 11 am on Thursday. “There have been many voices responding to us from many places and perspectives. We have listened closely, and we have heard each of you.”

Conboy claimed the initial decision was viewed as a “reflection of our College’s commitment to live our Catholic values as a loving and just community” — but said that it is “increasingly clear” that “the position we took is not shared by all members of our community.”



What see is the leadership of these colleges live in a different world.
