Let Student Organizations Discriminate, Says Civil Liberties Group
Is discrimination on campus ever necessary? A prominent civil liberties group says yes, and its argument is remarkably persuasive.
Student organizations like the College Democrats and evangelical bible study groups can't exist without the right to exclude dissenters, says Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). This amounts to a necessary form of discrimination against students who disagree with a group's mission.
