Middlebury College has suspended for one year a student who was involved in removing and throwing into the garbage flags placed on the campus last month to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks. In a statement on the college's website, officials said that the individual was believed to be the only student among five people who carried out the vandalism of what has become an annual commemoration at Middlebury (as on many campuses). The protesters said they were objecting to American imperialism.
The college's statement said that Middlebury's "community judicial board" had found the student responsible for violating standards relating to general conduct and respect for people and property. The one-year suspension was upheld on appeal, the statement said.
