University of Colorado: Christian Student Group Wins Lawsuit Allowing Them to Choose Their Own Club Leaders


Ratio Christi, a Christian group that aims to strengthen Christianity and discourse on campus, won their lawsuit against the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS), forcing the school to recognize the group as an official student organization. The original legal complaint against the university claimed that administrators told students that they could not require their group leader to be a Christian who shares their mission, violating students’ rights to free association.

The University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) has settled a
lawsuit with a Christian student group which forces the university to
recognize the group as an official student organization.

Breitbart News reported
in February that a Christian student group at UCCS had filed a lawsuit
against their university over its refusal to recognize them as an
official student organization. This week, UCCS settled with the Ratio
Christi student group.

The original legal complaint against the university claimed that
administrators told students that they could not require their group
leader to be a Christian. “It has refused to do so specifically because
this religious organization seeks to ensure that its leaders share its
beliefs and that its members support its mission, even though other
student organizations do the same,” the complaint read.

According to a report
from The College Fix, Ratio Christi settled with UCCS. As a result of
the settlement, the University of Colorado will be forced to recognize
the group as an official student organization. Additionally, the
students will now be permitted to choose their own leaders.
