About the Center for Academic Freedom

The Center for Academic Freedom (CAF), an Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) initiative, is dedicated to providing students and student organizations with support and information as they face escalating attacks on their free speech and religious freedom at America’s public universities. 

All students should be protected to freely speak and engage in the marketplace of ideas on campus under the First Amendment. ADF has been blessed to successfully litigate more campus cases than any other organization, and has a 100% success rate against anti-free speech zones on public university campuses. All told, ADF has secured nearly 400 victories for campus free speech.
