Students Vote with Feet, Donors with Dollars

When a Trinity College professor drew national outrage for his “Let them all ******* die” Facebook status update about white people, his college stood by its man. Not all students and donors were similarly inclined.

“Donors have pulled back and incoming students have decided to go elsewhere in response to the firestorm that erupted from a professor’s racially-charged Facebook posts, Trinity College’s president said Monday,” Russell Blair wrote in The Hartford Courant on August 1, 2017. “Joanne Berger-Sweeney said 16 incoming students have withdrawn and past donors have chosen not to contribute to the school this year, resulting in about a $200,000 loss in donations.”
“Both groups specifically cited the national uproar surrounding Professor Johnny Eric Williams’ posts, she said.”
