The State of Free Speech on Campus
Do you think that colleges and universities are doing enough to protect free speech?
Campus speech has been a divisive issue in 2019. In March, President Trump signed an executive order requiring colleges and universities that receive federal funds to uphold the First Amendment or risk losing research funds.
Some critics believe the executive order was an unnecessary, politically-charged move.
Others feel that free speech on campus is indeed under fire, especially with respect to controversial or offensive voices.
