Colorado College and LSSU Media Round-Up

By April 18, 2008

April has been a media-friendly month here at FIRE and we’d like to take a minute to catch you up on all the latest coverage of our cases, specifically articles on Colorado College and Lake Superior State University.

As Torch readers know, the controversy at Colorado College continues, with student Chris Robinson awaiting the decision of his appeal for being punished for posting a satirical flyer on campus. Media from all over Colorado have been covering the case persistently, including the Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain News, the Colorado Springs Gazette, and numerous television news outlets.

At Lake Superior State University, where veteran professor Richard Crandall was ordered to remove political materials he posted on his office door because someone deemed them “offensive,” articles have appeared in local Michigan and Canadian media, such as SooToday, the Sault Star and the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. Educational news sources Inside Higher Ed and Reason magazine have also covered the story.
