BALTIMORE (AP) — Johns Hopkins University has become the latest educational institution to reassure students that getting penalized for participating in gun control demonstrations won’t jeopardize their chances of enrollment.
In a tweet pinned at the top of its Twitter page, Johns Hopkins University says its admissions office supports students who engage in peaceful civic engagement.
The Baltimore university says: “Your admission will not be negatively impacted if you are disciplined for expressing yourself in a peaceful way.”
Dozens of universities and colleges have reassured high school students facing the threat of disciplinary action for taking part in gun control protests.
