On January 20, 2005 Yale Daily News reported, "following the recommendations of a University committee, Yale officials are searching for ways to implement wide-ranging reforms to religious life on campus, including increased support for the Protestant and Muslim communities and additional space for campus religious groups. The University Council Committee on Religious Life, which presented its confidential report to Yale President Richard Levin this December, called for general support for an increasing diversity of religion on campus and proposed making Battell Chapel a non-denominational church, University officials said. The committee, convened last year by Levin to analyze religious and spiritual life at Yale, included religious leaders from across the nation."
