STATEMENT BY THE U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY’S DEAN OF ADMISSIONS

  POSTED ON: Monday, June 22, 2020 3:22 PM by mediarelations@usna.edu

The following is attributable to Bruce Latta, U.S. Naval Academy Dean of Admissions:

After a thorough evaluation of the information surrounding the racist and inappropriate remarks made by an incoming member of the Class of 2024, Naval Academy Admissions’ Character Review Committee recommended withdrawing the individual’s offer of appointment to the United States Naval Academy.
 
I have approved the recommendation made by the Character Review Committee; Superintendent Vice Adm. Sean Buck concurs with this decision.  
 
The Naval Academy does not condone racism or bigotry of any kind within the U.S. Naval Academy family, as it completely violates our Navy’s core values, and does not support the U.S. Naval Academy mission.
