Professor Robert Katz Talks about Proposed Indiana House Measure
Professor Robert Katz was quoted in the Indianapolis Star for a story published February 25 on legislation that had been proposed in the Indiana House of Representatives, but was scrapped. The measure would have allowed any school, college, or religious institution affiliated with a church to make employment decisions based on religion, even if those organizations have a contract with the state. Katz said the move would have created a right to discriminate on the basis of religion for any purpose, “even if it has nothing to do with the organization's religious mission.”
In addition to his teaching at IU McKinney, Professor Katz is on the faculty of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, where he serves as professor of philanthropic studies.
