More schools poised to leave CCCU

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BP) – Several institutions plan to leave the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities at the end of August if at that time Eastern Mennonite University and Goshen College are still members.

Last month EMU and Goshen announced they would begin hiring faculty and staff in same-sex marriages. The CCCU, a coalition of 183 Christian colleges and universities around the world, initially said it would address the issue at the annual members meeting in January. But on July 28 the CCCU board said it would begin contacting each member president to discuss the matter sooner.
