Analyzing Common Problems with University Policies

October 17, 2017

Over at The Torch, FIRE's Samantha Harris has been writing an excellent series on various threats to liberty on public universities campuses.  Much like our series a few years ago on equal access and student fees, not only does Harris discuss the variety of threats to freedom, she also flexes the legal muscle on why these policies must be removed.  Several of Harris' posts include examples from Alliance Defending Freedom cases, like College Republicans at San Francisco State University v. Reed (a speech code case) and Roberts v. Haragan (a speech zone case).  Here are links to each part of the series:

The Problem with Mandating Civility

Misunderstanding ‘Harassment’

Free Speech Rights Must Extend to Students’ Online Expression

Posting Policies Frequently Restrict Student Expression

Misunderstanding ‘Time, Place, and Manner’ Restrictions

Alliance Defending Freedom, like FIRE, is working to eliminate these unconstitutional policies, but can do so only with your help.  Contact us if you think your university might be unfairly restricting your rights on campus.
