ELON, N.C. (AP) -- Elon University is creating a committee to study the school's relationship with its vendors, including restaurants like Chick-fil-A. 

The announcement came after the university's Student Government Association voted earlier this month to recommend that Chick-fil-A no longer sell food on campus because of the stance of the president of the restaurant chain against gay marriage. 

Elon spokesman Dan Anderson told the Times-News of Burlington (http://bit.ly/RNaEUI) that the committee will examine what Elon's relationship should be with vendors on campus. It will make a recommendation to university trustees, who will write a policy. 

Those trustees will then apply the policy to Chick-fil-A and other businesses on campus. 

Elon's Student Government Association voted in a nonbinding resolution 35-11 earlier this month to ask for another restaurant take Chick-fil-A's place.
