We understand that some applicants to Denison wish to engage in peaceful political protest, but are concerned that resulting disciplinary actions by their secondary schools could adversely affect their college admission. While we respect the right of our secondary school colleagues to enforce their own lawful rules as they see fit, no negative action will be taken on your application to Denison as a result of exercising your right to peaceful and meaningful protest. Peaceful protest and the constructive expression of ideas are consistent with Denison’s longstanding mission of valuing and promoting active citizenship.
