Following in the footsteps of San Jose State University, the San Jose Evergreen Community College District has also banned campus blood drives because of its commitment to nondiscrimination policies, the Spartan Daily reports.

Because of FDA guidelines, gay men are not allowed to give blood—a policy that conflicts with the district's promise to uphold nondiscrimination "at all costs," as the chancellor put it. Evergreen Valley College and San Jose City College are the two schools that will be affected by the ban.
