FIRE Advises University of Wisconsin on RA Bible Study Policy
On Friday, January 6, FIRE wrote to University of Wisconsin System President Kevin P. Reilly, who requested that interested parties weigh in on the development of a system-wide policy to determine whether RAs may lead Bible studies in their own dormitories. FIRE’s letter to Reilly pointed out that the UW System not only can but must allow RAs to lead voluntary gatherings of fellow students for the purpose of studying the Bible.
