In light of recent events, some high schools have chosen to discipline students for peacefully demonstrating. As the dean of admission and financial aid, it is important to me that you know K’s position.
To every high school student who chooses to lead or participate in a peaceful demonstration as a means to share their beliefs, we say, stand strong and proud. It has been our long-term practice at Kalamazoo College that your application for admission or acceptance to Kalamazoo College will not be in jeopardy should your high school discipline you for freely expressing your First Amendment rights in a peaceful and respectful manner.
Eric Staab, Dean of Admission and Financial Aid
