This is not higher education, it’s activism.
We really need to start tracking and punishing schools that do this crap, especially if they get tax dollars.

Arizona State U. prof allows class to hold anti-Trump protest instead of taking final exam
Arizona State University Professor Angeles Maldonado gave her class a choice last week: Take the final exam in her “Global Politics of Human Rights” class, or come up with a group project in its stead.
As just about any college class would do, they opted for the latter.
And … what better “project” to undertake than a protest of President Trump’s policies!
“The class decided that as a group project they wanted to make their voices heard about the issues that are affecting them today, so instead of just reading about the human-rights violations, they’d speak out about the current violations that are happening,” Maldonado said, according to The Arizona Republic.
The “rigor” of this project entailed students standing shoulder-to-shoulder near the ASU library and holding up letters which formed the phrase “Wall Against Hate!”
