Students for Life awaiting president’s verdict


President Mark Nook has not yet released his decision regarding the fate of potential student organization UNI Students for Life, as of press time Sunday.

The group’s representative Sophia Schuster, a sophomore history education major, told the Northern Iowan Sunday that she had heard nothing from the administration. UNI public relations manager Steve Schmadeke confirmed in an email that the decision had not yet been announced.

UNI Students for Life, an affiliate of the national pro-life group Students for Life, appealed to Nook this week after the Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG) Senate and Supreme Court both denied their application to become a student organization.

Schmadeke had told the Northern Iowan earlier this week that the administration hoped to release its decision by the end of the week.

The Northern Iowan will continue to report on this developing story in subsequent issues.
