BREAKING: ADF Challenges Unconstitutional Policy at UW-Eau Claire

Liebl v. Schmidt

Last Updated

Summary

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire requires students to perform 30 hours of “service-learning” in order to graduate. In 2016, the university denied student Alexandra Liebl her service-learning credit for the 30 hours she volunteered as a religious education teaching assistant at her local Catholic church. Officials cited the university’s service-learning policy, which prohibited students from receiving credit for “time spent involved in promoting religious doctrine, proselytizing, or worship.”
