The Third Degree

The Christian Union (CU) at Exeter University hit national headlines recently by becoming the first ever CU to take legal action against its student association. The committee of the group filed papers against the Student Guild at the university on January 5, claiming that the university has denied them freedom of speech, belief and association.

The legal action comes after the 50-year-old CU was suspended from the official list of student societies on campus, had its Student Union bank account frozen, and was banned from free use of Student Guild premises and advertising facilities. Exeter Student Guild claims that the CU’s constitution and activities do not conform to its Equal Opportunities Policies, which have been introduced only recently.
