The Salt Lake Tribune reports that during a formal meeting with the Univesity of Utah's president, nine Utah legislators from Utah County (home of BYU) criticize coursework at the state campus. Utah County legislators (including several members of the appropriations committee for the University of Utah) complain about "topics being taught that are inconsistent with the beliefs of the predominant religion, particularly in the Graduate School of Social Wrok and the department of philosophy." these legislators (eight Republicans out of nine) also have "concerns about the Women's Resource Center."
