In March 2020, a group of University of Pennsylvania students applied for university of recognition of the Hunting, Archery, and Shooting Club, whose mission is to “promote sustainable conservation, marksmanship, and ethical hunting practices through education and training.” Despite meeting all the criteria for club recognition, and even as other groups received approval, the club’s application sat in limbo for over a year. On March 17, 2021, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) sent a letter to Penn calling for the university to process the club’s application for registration. On March 18, Penn refused the request, citing the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on university operations. With FIRE’s help, the group finally attained registration on April 28.
