College students petition to have Trump’s honorary degree revoked


”Students at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, started a petition to have President Donald Trump’s honorary degree revoked. They feel as though Trump’s policies contradict the goals and values of the university.

According to the petition, Trump’s campaign tactics and policies in the White House go against the university’s principles and values. The petition cites the college’s “Principles of Our Equitable Community” that was drafted in 2011.

One of the main “principles” the university adopted was the promise to “maintain an inclusive and equitable community” that is founded on the principles of “unity and respect,” something petition signers feel Trump is actively working against.
