NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain has criticized some Christian student groups for agreeing to comply with the school's nondiscrimination policy.
The policy requires student groups to allow any student to join their groups and hold office, regardless of their beliefs.
Christian groups have protested the policy and two recently decided to end their affiliation with the university. Seventeen groups decided to comply with the policy. Another 11 are in limbo. They're not on the university's list of student groups but haven't been told their applications were rejected.
Swain told The Tennessean she was disappointed that two large groups agreed to the policy. If they had not, she believes that Vanderbilt might have backed down.
