Liberty U. Alters Policy on Political Clubs

June 23, 2009

LIberty University, which has been under criticism for denying recognition to a campus Democratic group, on Monday announced a new policy on political clubs that will treat Democrats and Republicans the same way. Under the new policy, both the Democratic and Republican clubs will be "unofficial," although they can use the university's name and meet on campus, The Lynchburg News & Advance reported.

Student Democrats said that they were pleased to be on equal footing with the Republicans.
