Alliance Defense Fund Challenges Policies at 40 Public Universities

May 4, 2012

The Alliance Defense Fund, which represents the interests of religious students and faculty members, has sent letters to 40 public universities, and plans to soon contact another 120 about policies that the fund says are unconstitutional. The fund says that some of the colleges are violating the rights of students and faculty members by limiting student speech, by applying anti-bias rules to all student organizations, and by discriminating against religious student groups in allocating student fees. The fund has in the past been successful in some of its campaigns -- either through publicity or the courts. But the fund has also lost some court battles on these issues.
