College Student Organizations

The Volokh Conspiracy is running a couple of posts about rules of Student Organization conduct at U of Tulsa's College of Law. Here is an excerpt:
student groups that "undertake[] to question the legitimacy of another student organization or deliberately question[] the programs of another student organiz[a]tion" will lose their funding from the student government (funding that I assume comes from the school), and "[i]nstitutionally, . . . may jeopardize their recognition as a legitimate law school organization."
Evidentally this is aimed at stifling partisan political divides at Tulsa Law. I hope its not aimed at shutting the Christians up.

I say that because I was the Treasurer of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at the University of Delaware for three years. Including staff salaries (2 full-time and 1 part-time) our organization probably had an operating budget getting close six figures. We received something in the mid two figures from the university. Thats right our grand funding from the university might have paid for some of our yearly copying costs. The only reason we bothered to stay an official Student Organization was that it gave us easier access to school facilities like rooms and offices. So both their threats would carry little weight with the church set.
