Protest to your heart’s desire, Cornell won’t punish you
As the #NeverAgain movement created after the Parkland, Fl. High school shooting gained momentum, Cornell University announced via Twitter that disciplinary action for peacefully protesting would not affect admission decisions.
The Cornell Daily Sun reports, “’Disciplinary action resulting from responsible engagement in non-violent protest will not jeopardize admission to Cornell,’ the University wrote in the tweet.”
Cornell joins Dartmouth, Yale, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Brown and other universities in support of those who choose to peacefully protest and who may apply to their institute in the future.
