    College Tells Protesting Students: Chick-fil-A Is Staying on Campus

    A Texas university bucked the anti-Chick-fil-A trend on college campuses this month when its administration refused a student government request to remove the popular restaurant.

    “We do not make vendor decisions based on their political or religious beliefs,” wrote Trinity University’s Tess Coody-Anders, vice president for strategic communications and marketing, in an email to students. 

    Campus Reform’s Frances Floresca was the first to report on the email.

    Coody-Anders added that the school considers “utilization, variety of options, vendor performance, and campus-wide feedback.”

    “Based on these criteria, Chick-fil-A appears to be a preferred vendor by students and the broader Trinity community,” she wrote.

    Chick-fil-A is on pace to become the third-largest restaurant chain in the U.S. based on sales.

    The student government association had passed a resolution criticizing the company’s donations to the Paul Anderson Youth Home, the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The resolution said the school’s “values of diversity and inclusion and Chick-fil-a’s values regarding the LGBT+ community are mutually exclusive.”

    “The negative consequences of having Chick-fil-a on campus outweigh the desires of those who are in favor of keeping it on campus,” the resolution read. “… the Trinity University Student Government Association recommends that Chick-fil-a is removed.”

    Trinity University is a private liberal arts school located in San Antonio. It has about 2,500 students.
