Vanderbilt’s “All-Comers” Policy Upsets 36 in Congress

posted on May 9, 2012

Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus wrote a letter objecting to Vanderbilt University’s “all-comers” policy, “which requires that university-recognized groups allow any student to join and run for office — even if a student doesn’t share the group’s central beliefs,” according to The Tennessean. The policy was put in place after a Christian fraternity expelled a gay member. The lawmakers wrote: “We are deeply troubled that Vanderbilt would use its freedom as a private institution to create a nondiscrimination policy that discriminates against religious student groups.”
