Missouri State University

Brooker v. Franks


WIN. On November 13, 2006, Missouri State University officials settled the lawsuit. The University agreed to purge Ms. Brooker’s record of the grievance and reassigned the offending professor to non-classroom duties. As a result of Ms. Brooker standing up to protect her religious liberty, state legislators proposed the Emily Brooker Intellectual Diversity Act, which would require each state university in Missouri to submit an annual report to the General Assembly explaining what steps the university had taken “to ensure intellectual diversity and the free exchange of ideas.”

Implications of Decision

Christian students do not have to abandon their religious beliefs on or off campus simply to obtain a college degree.
