HAMPTON — Hampton University’s business school dean is standing by a controversial ban on dreadlocks and cornrows for some students.
Male students enrolled in the school’s 5-year MBA program who take the seminar class cannot wear dreadlocks or cornrows in class.
The ban, which began in 2001, has been controversial over the years.
“I don’t think it shouldn’t matter what the hairstyle. It’s my life. I should be able to do whatever I want to do,” said incoming freshman Uriah Bethea, who wears dreadlocks and says he wouldn’t compromise his look for a class.
“I would just find another major,” he added.
Business School Dean Sid Credle believes the ban has been effective in helping his students land corporate jobs.
