Greg to Speak at Cal Poly on Monday

By February 3, 2011

FIRE President Greg Lukianoff will be hosted by the College Republicans at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) on Monday, February 7. Greg’s speech will begin at 7 p.m. in Building 26, Room 103.

Greg will be speaking about the chilling effects of campus censorshipa topic all too familiar at Cal Poly, where FIRE has intervened on behalf of students and faculty whose expression was endangered under Cal Poly’s abandoned CARE-Net program and on behalf of one student who was targeted in particular for his protected speech. Since Adam Kissel spoke at Cal Poly last spring, the university has appointed a new president but maintained its "yellow light" status in our Spotlight speech code database due to the school’s restrictive speech policies.

Those in the Los Angeles area who missed Greg’s speech at the Claremont Colleges last night have an opportunity to come out to support FIRE and encourage Cal Poly to fulfill its constitutional obligation to protect free speech on campus.
