GU president reviewing decision on Catholic club

A month after Gonzaga University officials denied an all-male, all-Catholic student club official recognition as a student organization, the college’s president has announced he’ll review the decision.

“The university is concerned that all of the factors involved in this decision have not been represented in their entirety, and thus may be misunderstood,” a GU spokesperson wrote in a statement released last weekend.

A Knights of Columbus College Council, a Catholic fraternal group, does exist on campus, but the denial means the group is not eligible for funds from the school’s student government and cannot officially use the college brand. Jody Lawrence Turner, SR
