“Policies” sounds so strict but here’s the deal.

We’ve worked for schools of every size and stripe and religion and concentration, in and out of the US. We politely decline proposals from schools whose handbooks don’t protect against discrimination. We’d love to do more work for HBCUs, native and under-represented communities, and all of the inspiring, weird* schools that could benefit from a fresh, clear, truthful voice.

*we won’t say weird on your website unless you want us to.
