Queens College Students for Life v. Members of the City University of New York Board of Trustees

Summary

In 2016, Students for Life (SFL) applied to be a recognized student group at Queen’s College in New York, but its application was denied without explanation under a discriminatory policy. This meant the group was further denied even the ability to apply for funds from the student activity fee pool that is distributed to student groups. ADF filed a lawsuit, and the College recognized Students For Life as a recognized student group. The lawsuit remains pending concerning the school’s policies for recognition and student group funding.
