Shortly after President Ruscio’s announcement early last week concerning the new flag policy for Lee Chapel, The Spectator sent out a survey in order to gauge the W&L community’s opinion on the matter.
The survey was sent to nearly 2,200 alumni and to all current undergraduates except for incoming freshmen. 433 alumni responded to the survey, along with 433 students.
The findings are presented below:
Do you agree with President Ruscio’s recent decision to remove the Confederate flags from Lee Chapel and instead display a Confederate flag in the museum downstairs?
Do you think public pressure caused President Ruscio to make this decision?
Do you think President Ruscio handled the Committee’s demands appropriately?
Do you think W&L is heading in the right direction?
