Albertson College of Idaho: Speech Code Repeal

Category: Free Speech
Schools: The College of Idaho

Albertson College of Idaho was FIRE’s Speech Code of the Month for July, 2005. The university’s harassment policy prohibited comments that “fail to respect dignity and feelings,” and stated that students could be punished for undefined behaviors that the school considered “inconsistent with the standards and expectations.” After FIRE brought attention to the school’s policy it was changed, resulting in a victory for free speech on campus.
