On June 1, the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), joined a diverse group of U.S. religious and legal leaders in writing to the U.S. Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, about the need to preserve two federal regulations, 34 C.F.R. §§ 75.500(d) and 76.500(d), that impact religious freedom at public universities.
The signers of the letter asked Cardona to preserve two regulations, 34 C.F.R. §§ 75.500(d) and 76.500(d), that provide protections for faith-based student organizations and their contributions to religious diversity on public college campuses.
