Is There Freedom of Speech in College?

Should you have freedom of speech on college campus?

Have you ever been told you need a permit or special permission to hold an event or demonstration on campus? Though we don’t think of them as government representatives the way we do police officers or legislators, administrators at taxpayer-funded universities are public officials bound by the first amendment.

When they censor speech on campus, they violate students’ rights. That’s why the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has started the Stand Up for Speech Litigation Project.
