Colby-Sawyer College is committed to an educational, living and working environment that encourages free speech and the ability to protest peacefully.

The college is aware that some high schools have threatened to suspend or otherwise penalize students who choose to exercise their rights to participate in peaceful protests against gun violence.

Admissions decisions for those who have applied to or been admitted to the college, as well as the status of current students, will not be affected by thoughtful participation in such protests.
