University of Wisconsin Bans Bible Studies

The University of Wisconsin has maintained a policy that limits the political and ideological speech of its resident assistants (RAs). Included in these limitation is a complete ban on Bible studies conducted by RAs. This ban contradicts the university's encouragement of other political and ideological programs and events.

David French, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), has stated the university "has no business forbidding RAs or any other students to engage in religious activities in their own rooms and on their own time."

Wisconsin Attorney General Peggy A. Lautenschlager is reviewing the constitutionality of the university's ban.
