FIRE letter to University of Florida President Bernie Machen, March 8, 2012

By March 8, 2012

The University of Florida revised a policy that FIRE had named one of our two "Speech Codes of the Year" for 2011, but only partially addressed the unconstitutional restrictions it placed on student speech. To address the remaining problems with the policy, as well as the university’s other speech codes, FIRE wrote to University of Florida President Bernie Machen, asking him to act to uphold students’ free speech rights by revising these policies.
