Although Kenyon has started to move on from #respectfuldifference, another college has hopped on the train. Ripon College, a small (and actually small, guys, Wikipedia says they only have 930 students) liberal arts college located a couple of hours north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was introduced to the #respectfuldifference campaign through David Scott, the Pieper chair of servant leadership.
Like at Kenyon, “Current and past students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to tweet why they support differences,” according to Kaylie Longley ’15. It really seems to be catching on, gathering the attention of many at the college.
Well, if you ask me, that’s pretty cool.
