InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is a 65-year old evangelical organization operating chapters on 564 campuses as of 2005. In recent years, it has been the subject of legal battles regarding adherence to the organization’s eight-point doctrinal plan and its opposition to homosexuality. Around the country, the organization has refused to allow LGBT students in leadership positions. The organization was banned in 2002 at Rutgers University after refusing to alter its membership rules, prompting the prominent religious right legal organization the Alliance Defense Fund to offer legal assistance and gaining the support of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education an organization challenging “political correctness” and “leftist bias” in academia.
