Constance Jones, CEO of Noble Network, was recently published in the Chicago Sun-Times, where she discussed the new policy she implemented this semester. The new dress code policy allows for both students and staff members to bring their whole self to school with less restrictions on hair color/designs, tattoos, and piercings.


On the first day that the new policy was implemented, Jones showed up to various campuses in the Noble Network with her hair temporarily colored purple. “It felt like showing up at a Halloween party where you’re the only one in costume,” Jones said. “I just wanted to model to people that it’s OK.”
