The 10 worst colleges for free speech: Campuses were rocked by violent mob censorshipmonitored by bias response teamsplagued by free speech zonesand beset by far too many disinvitation attempts.
Although the number of colleges with the most restrictive speech codes has continued to decline90 percent of schools still maintain codes that either clearly restrict or could too easily be used to restrict free speech. Today, we present our list of the 10 worst colleges for free speech.
As always, our list is presented in no particular order, and it includes both public and private institutions. Public colleges and universities are bound by the First Amendment; the private colleges on this list, though not required by the Constitution to protect student and faculty speech rights, explicitly promise to do so.
This year, that school is DePaul University. Are you a student or faculty member whose free speech rights are imperiled on campus? Submit a case to FIRE. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Troy, N. Rensselaer Student Union Credit: InRPI continued that tradition, working literally day and night to censor students.
One student was charged under a policy barring commercial solicitation for distributing a letter criticizing the administration. These charges were dropped only after months of criticism from FIRE.
Drexel University Philadelphia, Pa. The trouble for Ciccariello-Maher began on Dec. Drexel initially promised Ciccariello-Maher that he would not face punishment for the tweet, but the red light institution quietly launched an investigation anyway.
FIRE wrote to Drexel on June 2,reminding the university of its commitments to free expression and warning that its investigation of Ciccariello-Maher contradicted those promises.
Rather than admit its mistake, Drexel refused to drop its investigation and then barred Ciccariello-Maher from campus in October, citing threats from those outraged by his tweets. Just last year, faculty at schools including the University of TampaEssex County CollegeMontclair State UniversityCalifornia State University, Fresnoand Trinity College faced suspensions, investigations, and even firings in response to outrage campaigns.
Harvard University Cambridge, Mass. Widener Library at Harvard Credit: Harvard did just that, and the blacklist policy to deny certain academic and leadership privileges to members of single-gender groups like sororities, fraternities, and final clubs is still on track to be implemented this semester.
First, Harvard rescinded offers of admission from 10 students for sharing joke images in a private group chat on Facebook. Had those students matriculated to Harvard, subjecting them to punishment would have been in violation of Harvard policy. But as the students had only been admitted, Harvard, under the cover of that technicality, deemed them unworthy of protection.
Ironically, this happened only a week after we praised Harvard President Drew Faust for a powerful commencement address in support of free speech on college campuses. She said, in part: It requires them as well to be fearless in face of argument or challenge or even verbal insult.
Instead, it almost immediately buckled to pressure and revoked the fellowship. Last year, a student at one district campus, Los Angeles Pierce College, decided to push back. The zone is about the size of three parking spaces and makes up about.
Fordham University New York, N. Fordham Rose Hill Campus Credit: Finding yourself back on it in Members of the prospective SJP chapter fought back and filed a lawsuit against Fordham on April 26, Evergreen State College Olympia, Wash. Now it has achieved a kind of infamy, at least in higher education circles.
Biology Professor Bret Weinstein responded to this request on a staff and faculty email list, objecting to the idea of asking people to leave rather than having a group voluntarily leave.
They shouted and chanted until he came out, accusing him of racism and demanding his resignation. They yelled over him when he tried to talk and blocked him when he tried to leave. They reportedly blocked entrances with furniture.
