The Muslim Student Union (MSU) at the University of California, Irvine is suspended for the fall semester. But its activities continue unabated, thanks to a glaring loophole in the suspension policy.
Other groups are free to fill in the void created by MSU's suspension and sponsor the same kinds of events and programs, school officials say. But "[u]nder the terms of the suspension, neither the MSU nor any group that includes former MSU leaders as officers may sponsor events on campus," UCI spokeswoman Cathy Lawhon said last week.
The organization serving as MSU's replacement in a series of programs throughout the fall is an arm of the student group, records show.
