Willamette statement on admission evaluation in wake of Florida tragedy

by Marketing & Communications,

In the wake of last week’s tragic shooting in Florida, students across the country are choosing to participate in peaceful demonstrations and important conversations to express their values. Willamette University will not consider in its admission decisions disciplinary action against high school or transfer students who engage in actions related to responsible citizenship and civic engagement.

Willamette believes in productive discourse and encourages dialogue between those with differing viewpoints. Our community’s deeply held commitment to its motto, not unto ourselves alone are we born, encourages the application of knowledge into action to create meaningful change in service to and for the betterment of society.

Prospective and admitted students and their families should feel free to direct any questions to our office of admission at bearcat@willamette.edu or 503-370-6303 or 844-BEARCAT (toll free).
