The Minneapolis College of Art and Design values and supports students who want to make a positive impact on important issues in society. The college respects any student's decision to add their voice to the debate. Admissions decisions will not be influenced by a student's decision to participate in peaceful public protests, and any applicant who is disciplined for non-violent participation will not be penalized. MCAD will continue to make admission decisions on the entirety of a student's application in a holistic review.
