Johns Hopkins University: Viewpoint Discrimination Against Student Newspaper

Category: Free Speech
Schools: Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins University (JHU) dropped its investigation of a harassment complaint filed against staff members of a conservative student newspaper, The Carrollton Record. After several months of correspondence with JHU administrators, FIRE gained assurance that JHU is no longer pursuing the investigation. However, limitations on the distribution rights of campus publications remain and the university has not acted against cases of newspaper theft against The Carrollton Record. Johns Hopkins remains on FIRE’s Red Alert list.
