The Undergraduate Council’s finance committee voted to recommend legislation that would bar religious group Harvard College Faith and Action from all Council funding.
Harvard College Faith and Action will not lose the ability to book rooms, recruit students, or receive Undergraduate Council funding as part of its year-long probation.
The Undergraduate Council passed a resolution denouncing the actions of religious group HCFA and affirming its support for the BGLTQ community Sunday.
Brunching across campus Sunday, many undergraduates said they opposed HCFA’s move to demote the student as well as what they called the group’s negative stance toward BGLTQ Harvard affiliates.
Harvard College Faith and Action will need to sever ties with parent group Christian Union in order to re-earn recognition from the College at the end of its year-long administrative probation.
