TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - High school students across the country are taking part in protests after the deadly Florida school shooting.

They're hoping to inspire gun law reform.

Some high schools are taking disciplinary action for students who leave class to take part in the protests.

Indiana State University posted a statement on the matter Wednesday. They stated that there will not be a negative impact on admission or scholarships for students disciplined for taking part in peaceful protests.

The statement reads “ISU values its tradition of preparing students to become active, productive citizens."
