  • Campus liberty under siege by liberal academia

    January 7, 2013

    As an educator, I am naturally concerned with maintaining the highest academic standards we can. It is, therefore, with some disquiet that I have observed the creeping attacks on liberty on campus. Instead of an honest marketplace of ideas, we have witnessed the rise of political proselytization.This is why I am pleased a ringing defense of intellectual freedom has been published to unambiguously positive reviews. I know people are reading less nowadays, but Greg Lukianoff’s “UnLearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate” (Encounter Books, 2012) is worth the time.Almost as wonderful as the book’s message is the […]

  • Conservatives Push for Political Balance on Campus

  • Will Indiana University Go Green?

    October 4, 2010

    This summer, FIRE was fortunate to have Nico Perrino from Indiana University (IU) as one of our interns. Nico quickly made clear his intention to help transform IU from a “yellow-light” university in FIRE’s Spotlight speech code database into a “green-light” university that fully protects free speech. Nico isn’t the only IU student concerned about his fellow students’ rights. On July 25, Nathan Miller wrote an article about IU’s speech codes in the Indiana Daily Student, and the next day, the Indiana University Student Association (IUSA) joined the effort. Yesterday’s Indiana Daily Student tells the story: Murat Kacan, chief of communications for […]
