Campus Reform: Trinity University sent out an email Friday rejecting the student government’s request to remove Chick-fil-A from its campus dining hall.
Tess Coody-Anders, the Texas Christian school’s vice president for strategic communications and marketing. stated, “We do not make vendor decisions based on their political or religious beliefs,” in an email to students obtained by Campus Reform, adding that the school considers “utilization, variety of options, vendor performance, and campus-wide feedback.”
“Based on these criteria, Chick-fil-A appears to be a preferred vendor by students and the broader Trinity community,” the email continued.
Trinity’s student government previously passed a resolution to remove Chick-fil-A from the school’s dining hall because of its stance on LGBT issues. The body took issue with the restaurant chain’s donations to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Salvation Army, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home. more here
