Grand Canyon University sues Dept. of Education for nonprofit denial

Grand Canyon University sued the U.S. Department of Education on Tuesday over the department’s refusal to treat the university as a nonprofit entity.

The university said in a statement that it “reluctantly” filed the lawsuit after attempts to address the department’s concerns.

GCU alleges the Department “acted arbitrarily and capriciously” in rendering its decision to make the university continue following for-profit university rules that are more onerous than those governing nonprofits. The university said in a statement that it has sought an “amicable resolution” with the department for 30 months. 

“GCU is not a litigious organization and has made extraordinary efforts to address every concern raised by the Department in its November 2019 ruling. However, for a variety of reasons outlined in the complaint, we have no choice but to seek this legal remedy … ,” GCU spokesman Bob Romantic said via email.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Education said the department doesn’t comment on pending litigation. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Arizona.
