Grand Valley State University: Political Litmus Test in Music Department’s Job Requirements
- "Victory for Freedom of Conscience at Grand Valley State University: Music Department Axes Political Litmus Test," July 28, 2009: Grand Valley State University (GVSU) has promised to remove "demonstrated commitment to the principles of diversity" from the stated job requirements for faculty seeking appointment to GVSU's Department of Music. The department will restate its requirements in terms of relevant experience, not vaguely worded personal commitments regarding a controversial political issue. The change came after FIRE asked GVSU to restore freedom of conscience on its campus.
