I mock anyone who says tuitions must be subsidized because of high tuition costs.

Pomona College in Claremont, California, sponsored up to 70 students to attend an anti-Trump rally over the weekend.

The rally, called “United Against Hate,” was one of hundreds of marches that took place around the country after Donald Trump’s election. Now there’s word that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) might have reason to look into the school’s involvement.

On November 14th, news broke that Pomona College’s Draper Center for Community Partnerships paid for its students’ transportation to and expenses accrued during a “United Against Hate” rally in Los Angeles.

Applicants were directed to sign up using an online form, and the center promoted the event through Facebook.

However, the school organization may have violated Pomona College’s 501 (c)(3) non-profit status by funding it with tuition dollars.

In an opinion piece for The Claremont Independent, a student newspaper affiliated with the Leadership Institute, Pomona College students Matthew Reade and Ross Steinberg, spell out the case that Pomona may not be able to get away with this form of political engagement. The center is 98% funded by Pomona College student fees.
