Although some religious organizations have said they will not register as campus organizations at Vanderbilt University, the Baptist Collegiate Ministry has applied to remain a registered campus organization. In January officials of Vanderbilt met with students to explain that the university will enforce its non-discrimination policy and a new “all-comers” policy. The all-comers policy means that any student at Vanderbilt is entitled to become a member and to seek a leadership position in any registered student organization on campus. Thom Thornton, Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) director at Vanderbilt, is confident the BCM can operate within the Vanderbilt guidelines. “We have been assured by the university that we can select leaders committed to the organization’s mission.”
