(LAFAYETTE JOURNAL & COURIER) -- WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue will stand by its plans to bring a Chick-fil-A fast food franchise to campus, despite protests from some faculty on the University Senate and Purdue’s student body president over the company CEO’s record on LGBT issues, according to a statement released from the university Friday morning.
The university, in its statement, cited “overwhelming demand for (Chick-fil-A’s) service from students, staff and faculty.”
