136 Texas public colleges, universities asked about religious discrimination at career centers

ADF, allies send letters urging campus officials to change any job posting policies discriminating against religious organizations

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Alliance Defense Fund, the Justice Foundation, and Liberty Institute sent letters Thursday to top officials of 136 colleges and universities across the Lone Star State, urging them to change any discriminatory policies against religious organizations at their career centers in the wake of the resolution of a recent problem at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Highlighting the May victory, the letter stresses the right of religious organizations seeking employees who share their religious beliefs to use the services and communication channels provided by career service centers at public universities just as non-religious entities are allowed to seek those with similar viewpoints.
