Veterans usually are associated with extremist right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA. In order to provide a safe place for all students, extremist right-wing groups must be suppressed on campus. This would include their followers: veterans.
“Veterans should be allowed to attend trade schools, or maybe even community college. But, in order to protect our academic institutions we must ban veterans from four-year universities.”
We ascribe to The Board of Regents’ Guiding Principle that the University of Colorado shall always strive to “provide an outstanding, respectful, and responsive living, learning, teaching, and working environment.” Veterans are positive and valued members of our academic and campus community. They bring experience and viewpoints that enrich our discussions.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A newsletter posted on the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) campus started to make the rounds on social media Thursday. It states veterans should be banned from four-year universities. Several viewers asked 11 News to look into the origin of the newsletter.
The letter states military veterans should be banned from classes and compares the military culture to white supremacist groups.
First off, many veterans openly mock the ideas of diversity and safe spaces for vulnerable members of society.
The University of Colorado system adheres to the freedoms embodied in the United States Constitution, which include the freedom of speech contained in the First Amendment.
In a statement released by the University's Chancellor Venkat Reddy, he says that while the University does not want to deny the freedom of speech, it also wants to make clear to the public that it doesn't agree with the words written in the article.
"...we recognize the right of people to express their viewpoints, even when those viewpoints are offensive to many in our community," said Venkat Reddy, UCCS Chancellor. "Beyond the fact that the authors’ position is illegal, it is also wrong... Veterans are positive and valued members of our academic and campus community. They bring experience and viewpoints that enrich our discussions."

And people wondered why Generation Z will be Conservative. They don't want to be associated with Millenials.
