Young Americans for Freedom v. University of Florida
Last Updated: 6/2/2020
The University of Florida failed to distribute money collected from mandatory student fees to student organizations in a fair, viewpoint-neutral manner, prompting a lawsuit from the Young Americans for Freedom chapter on campus.
A Gordon College associate professor of social work with an advanced degree in theology applied for promotion to full professorship, but her application was declined in 2016 because her performance fell short of the college’s expectations for faculty scholarship and institutional service. She also revealed that she no longer agrees with significant religious beliefs in the college’s covenantal documents that she had to reaffirm every year of her employment. Nonetheless, she filed suit over the college’s decision.
