DePaul University: Censorship of Student Group Protesting Ward Churchill

Category: Free Speech
Schools: DePaul University

A student group that protested a campus appearance by University of Colorado Professor Ward Churchill has become DePaul University’s latest victim of censorship. FIRE denounced DePaul’s Orwellian actions after the university banned its College Republicans from posting flyers protesting Churchill’s visit and actually changed its own rules to prevent the organization from attending a workshop that he would be leading.  The school issued a formal warning condemning the student group.
