Serious "School Expels Student For Being Gay" or "School Expects Scholarship Money Returned"

...What the crap? Here is the link that caught my eye and here's a second link.

Basically, this lady was going to school at Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska and they discovered that she was in a same-sex relationship a few months before she was to graduate. This is why:


Quote:
She was told, “…it would be impossible for the faculty of Grace University to affirm your Christian character, a requirement for degree conferral.”
Not only that, they want her to repay the scholarship money that she used to fund her education:

Quote:
Being kicked out of school for being gay would have been awful enough -- but Danielle’s nightmare didn’t end there. In addition to being expelled, school officials revoked her scholarships and are hounding her for $6000 in back due tuition for the final semester -- which she was never allowed to complete -- that her scholarships would have covered.
First there was that Fake Prom thing and now they're making no effort to mask their bigotry.

...Fuck.

Don't go to weirdo Christian colleges, I guess. I'm assuming for it to pull this kind of shenanigans it's a private college.

Hopefully she can transfer her credits to a public institution and fight these scholarship fees in court.

EDIT: Like just looking at that site the front page has bible verses and all kinds of other stuff on it.

Hopefully they didn't tell her all these moral requirements and she can fight it that way.

It does not justify, nor it explains anything... but this is their Mission Statement as a University

"Grace University exists to develop servant leaders for the home, the church and the world through excellence in biblically-integrated education and through life change in a personal, discipling environment, all for the glory of God."

So, yeah... i would imagine she choose to be go to college in a place like that cause she thought it would be a positive thing in her life, until they found out that they hate what she is as a person...

Here is hoping common sense prevails and she gets the education she seeked for and not to have to pay this stupid charge from the University.

Yeah but again this is clearly some weird private college. Like to get in probably requires an interview process in person to make sure you're "one of them".

But clearly the scholarship they offered her must have been a decision factored in, so if she was in financial need that would definitely be appealing.

These kinds of colleges do, typically, grant pretty huge scholarships. And generally to people who couldn't otherwise afford a degree in any realistic manner, given the costs of tuition and lack of substantial aid in the modern world.

It should be illegal for them to request back the scholarship money, if nothing else. I'm pretty sure that, while you can cut off a scholarship, you can't RETROACTIVELY cut it off.

One could make the argument that allowing the university to retroactively cut off scholarship and revoke the credits for attended courses would set a precedent for further entrapment scenarios to occur and/or breed (further) corruption within the faculty. All it would take is a high ranking individual to threaten a student with this punishment for any sort of perceived infraction no matter how minor or harmless or irrelevant to academic success it might be.

Quite detestable, and already signed petition in support of the victim.
