In Case You Couldn’t Find Harvard’s Free Speech Policy …

By August 11, 2010

Yesterday we noticed that Harvard University no longer lists its “Free Speech Guidelines”–Harvard’s decades-long promise of free speech–in its usual place. It used to be at http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~secfas/public/FreeSpeech.html in a text-searchable HTML file. In case you were looking for it, the only copy we can find right now on Harvard’s website is linked from the bottom of this page in a non-searchable PDF of the 1990 document.

Of course, if you want a searchable version, FIRE still has one online here. Meanwhile, Harvard should immediately fix the many embarrassing broken links now strewn about its site, lest vistors be unable to find the Guidelines. Or, better yet, Harvard could simply repost the document that for some reason was moved or removed.
