Between the findings letter and the resolution agreement from the Departments of Education and Justice to the University of Montana, almost 50 pages of text comprise the new federal "blueprint" for campus sexual misconduct policies. So FIRE completely understands if you have some questions about what all this means and what’s so bad about the "blueprint."  That’s why we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about the ED and DOJ’s letter. FIRE’s FAQ covers the context of the letter, the threat to free expression presented by the blueprint, and additional information for lawyers, college administrators, and professors. Of course, we also provide more information about what you can do to help FIRE fight back for free speech on campus.   And if there’s anything we haven’t covered, let us know!
