Five years ago, Iowa State University student backlash followed when the Big 12 Conference contemplated the addition of Brigham Young University, which until recently banned "homosexual behavior."
Now, Iowa State's Student Government is condemning a lack of student input before a recent Big 12 vote to invite BYU, a private Mormon college in Provo, Utah.
The Big 12, of which Iowa State is a member, announced Sept. 10 plans to invite BYU, as well as Houston, Central Florida and Cincinnati into the conference. This comes after the Southeastern Conference invited current Big 12 teams Texas and Oklahoma to join that league by 2025, possibly sooner.
The Student Government resolution says the Big 12 Conference and Iowa State University failed to gather student input before voting on the expansion.
