Letter from Penn State President Graham B. Spanier to FIRE, March 12, 2001

March 12, 2001

Dear Mr. Kors:

Thank you for your recent letter regarding your concerns about Penn State's
chapter of Young Americans for Freedom. As you know, I have been out of town
until today. I was not aware of the recent decision made by the Undergraduate
Student Government.However, upon reviewing information provided by our Office
of Student Affairs, I must agree with your assessment: The Young Americans for
Freedom should be granted registration as a student organization.

I am pleased to say that the Undergraduate Student Government Supreme Court
met today and reversed its earlier decision. Registration has been granted to
the Young Americans for Freedom.

Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention. I am glad we were able
to resolve this issue.


Graham B. Spanier
