Catholic Group Cuts Ties with Vanderbilt over Policy

Ad Feedback

A Catholic student group at Vanderbilt University has voted to cut ties with the school over its non-discrimination policy.

The controversial policy states that any student can seek leadership positions in campus-approved organizations.

Christian students have been vocal in their opposition to the policy. They argue that their groups should not be forced to admit members who do not share their beliefs.

Vanderbilt Catholic became the first group to announce that it has no plans to re-register as an official student group at the school.

Vanderbilt Catholic chaplain, Father John Sims Baker, said student leaders recognized they could not in good conscience agree to a policy that could allow that to happen.
