On January 26, 2005 The Tennessean reported, "one week before the scheduled start of a free course on Islam at Tennessee State University, members of the Islamic Center of Nashville have been told they won't be able to use a room at the campus, a mosque leader said yesterday. TSU officials could not immediately explain why the invitation was reversed. But the cancellation came one week after the dean of Tennessee Bible College in Cookeville sent a letter to TSU President James Hefner questioning the use of a government-funded university for a course on religion."
