A professor at Arizona State University allowed students to protest President Trump as a group project effort instead of taking a final exam.
Angeles Maldonado, a professor at ASU, gave her Global Politics of Human Rights class the option of completing a group project or taking a final exam.
Her students opted for the project, and the 20 students in Maldonado’s class decided that their final project would be a protest against President Trump’s policies.
The protest took place Thursday on ASU’s campus in Tempe, Arizona, the Arizona Republic reported.
“The class decided that as a group project they wanted to make their voices heard about the issues that are affecting them today, so instead of just reading about the human-rights violations, they’d speak out about the current violations that are happening,” Maldonado told the Republic, adding that she believed it was her duty as a professor to support their decision.
The students created signs and stood in a line outside ASU’s library to form a human wall.
