On September 19, 2004 Yale Daily News reported, "in order to better accommodate the ever-changing religious community at the University, officials have assembled a Committee on Religious and Spiritual Life at Yale. Formed at the request of Yale President Richard Levin, the group will make recommendations to him and the Yale Corporation this spring about how the University can best support students' religious interests... Highsmith, who is in charge of staffing the committee, said that it includes religious leaders from universities around the country and was formed to examine organized religion and spirituality in general at the University. The last time a committee investigated religious life at Yale was in the early 1990s, Highsmith said."
