On January 20, 2022, Dartmouth’s College Republicans, Turning Point USA, and Network of Enlightened Women chapters planned to host an event with conservative journalist Andy Ngo. Dartmouth’s administration unilaterally canceled the in-person event, citing “information” from local law enforcement, and required the event be conducted online. No protesters appeared. FIRE wrote to Dartmouth on January 26, asking for clarification about what specific threats or security risks precipitated the decision.
