"As alumni, we were concerned with actions taken by the Administration, and felt some corrections were needed for the long term good of the Institute. However, it's difficult to know how alumni can best help their school. FIRE provides that information and then equips us with the tools to bring positive change."
Charles Davis, MIT Alumni Free Speech Alliance

The MIT Free Speech Alliance mobilizes alumni to take proactive efforts to ensure the university prioritizes free speech, open inquiry, and viewpoint diversity.
