Elon University Committee To Be Launched To Study Vendors Business On Campus

Elon University in North Carolina announced that no decision had been made concerning the presence of Chick-fil-A on the campus.

Last week, the Student Government Association voted so that the anti-gay chain of restaurant Chick-fil-A is replaced by another.

The representatives of the university had to make a decison but they did not make it.

However, according to The Times NewsThe Times News, Dan Anderson, an Elon spokesman who is one of the university’s vice presidents, said that the university is creating a study committee to examine the broader issue of Elon’s relationships with vendors doing business on campus. That committee will make recommendations to the university’s board of trustees later this year.

Anderson said the plan is for trustees to outline procedures as to Elon’s relationship with its vendors, with the university’s leadership then applying those procedures to Chick-fil-A.

"This is not going to be a policy that says Chick-fil-A can stay or Chick-fil-A can go," he said, but will provide guidance on how to handle the situation and potential future controversies.

So, for the moment, Chick-fil-A remains in place.

The University is asking for opinions so if you want to share yours with the study committee, you can send an email here: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
