Professor receives lesson on constitution (October 1, 2017)

A professor at a Kansas public university will no longer be holding classes in a religious setting after FFRF took action.

It was reported to FFRF that a professor at Wichita State University was holding her chemistry classes in a religious coffee shop that described itself as “an outreach ministry of the Lutheran Student Center.” FFRF was informed that the shop is filled with bible quotes and other religious iconography.

In a letter sent to Wichita State University President John Bardo, FFRF expressed concern over students being required to enter a religious establishment in order to attend a science class at a secular, public university. FFRF requested that necessary and appropriate steps be taken to ensure the professor’s classes will be held in secular locations. On Oct. 1, FRFF was notified by a legal representative of the university that the violation had been remedied.
