Kevin P. Reilly, president of the University of Wisconsin System, has asked the state's attorney general to weigh in on a dispute over whether resident assistants in university dorms can lead Bible studies. The university system prohibits resident assistants from holding activities like religious studies or political events, but one at the Eau Claire campus says his constitutional rights are being violated by the ban on his holding Bible studies in his room. The student is being supported by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.
