Grand Valley State University: Suppression of Affirmative Action Bake Sale

Category: Free Speech
Schools: Grand Valley State University

Students at GVSU were threatened with possible punishment for holding an affirmative action bake sale protest. Complaining students charged the College Republicans with violating a variety of GVSU regulations, most having to do with “discrimination.” FIRE wrote GVSU president Mark Murray to protest the censorship. Unfortunately, under pressure from the administration, the College Republicans chose to eject their leadership and apologize for holding the event in the hope that the school would not issue any sanctions against the group.
