Congressman Doug Collins, winner of Allegheny College's 2019 Prize for Civility in Public Life, recently went on television and said of Democrats: "They are in love with terrorists, we see that. They mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families."

Enough is enough.

Allegheny College must rescind Congressman Collins' honor. He disgraces himself — and our beloved institution — with his vile, hateful language and worldview.

Further, if Allegheny is to continue this tradition, it must overhaul its selection criteria to ensure that institutional decorum and personal magnanimity are not honored as "civil" while language and policy positions that prop up inequality, thwart progress, condone bigotry, and harm vulnerable communities are brushed over.

We — students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, supporters, and friends of the College — call on Allegheny to immediately rescind Rep. Collins' prize and undertake concrete steps to reform the Prize for Civility in Public Life.
