A university has decided that they will ban restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A from its campus in an effort to promote inclusion. The university cited the corporation’s values as a reason for the ban.
According to Fox News:
As seen on Fox & Friends FirstNew Jersey’s Rider University sent a survey to students asking them which restaurants they would like to see on campus, but when it became clear Chick-fil-A was the top pick, the school told students the popular fast-food chain would not be brought to campus.
Campus Reform first reported on the survey that was sent to students during the spring semester.
After the results were compiled, the school sent an email to students on November 1, saying Chick-fila-A’s “corporate values have not sufficiently progressed enough to align with those of Rider.”
The school went on to clarify that the decision was in an effort to “promote … inclusion for all people.”
Many people pointed out the fact that the university was practicing inclusion by excluding a company. Pointing out the irony in their decision.
