Dr. Mathew B. Johnson is days away from being officially inaugurated as the 17th president of Albion College. Despite the fact that countless staff, faculty, students, and Albion community members have spoken out against Johnson and everything that he has done "for" Albion College. We want Mathew Johnson out of Albion College.

Mathew Johnson, who ignored when POC at Albion were being harassed in their dorm halls until there was massive student-led protests. He also went on to hire POC on staff, made it clear he hired them because they were POC, and when the faculty member made it clear they were uncomfortable (stating that they felt like they were just being used as a statistic) he and his team ignored this professor until they quit.

According to several faculty members and staff, Johnson's "my way or the highway" attitude has ruined morale and is driving Albion College to the ground. he has been shown bullying staff and students to get his way. Most recently he has been bullying fraternity members into giving up their housing and agreeing with his plan to relocate all frat members to an apartment building on campus. When some of the frats did not agree with Johnson's plan, he locked them out of the third floor of their houses. This is not the first time that Johnson has put students or staff in uncomfortable positions in order to get what he wants.

Among other things, Johnson has also kept two goats on campus despite city laws not allowing farm animals and kept them in kennels. Hiring a construction company that he is the principal of to do unnecessary jobs on Albion's campus. Taking away safe student parking in order to put in green spaces that are not even eco-friendly. All of these are just examples of things that are happening that students are aware of.

The people of Albion College and the surrounding Albion community deserve better than this, we deserve better than him. Mathew Johnson needs to face consequences for his actions and be removed from office.
